Salt levels in ready-to-eat soup purchased in catering establishments
Project Reference: 04-2009
Commencement Date: April, 2010
Project Duration: 15 months
The aim of this survey was to provide a snap shot of the salt content of soup from a range of catering outlets on the island. The survey set out to investigate any differences in the salt content of soups that claim to be "homemade/freshly prepared" versus other types of soups sold in catering outlets.
The results will be used to communicate salt reduction messages to consumers and the food industry.
