It Has Nearly Twice The RDA Of Salt
Britons eat nearly twice their recommended salt allowance on Christmas Day, health campaigners from Consensus Action of Salt and Health (CASH) have warned.
The salt RDA is 5g, but the average Christmas dinner contains 8.87g of salt.
While the nation goes about their routine gorge on the big day, experts warn that hungry Brits should steer clear of salt traps like processed and pre-prepared food to reduce the salt intake this Christmas.
