Your recommended daily allowance of salt

Are you over or under? Do you worry about it?

Let’s talk about salt, baby.

Must be over. Worry about it a bit but I’ve got food intolerances and there’s not much that can make my meals taste of something, so there’s not a lot I can do other than avoid stuff like crisps.

Almost definitely way over, no idea what it is or how much I consume though, and to be honest with you Joke my good friend, I couldn’t give one hoot.

a lot more likely to think about carbs/sugar etc.


Well under, I think. Other than Linda Macs sausages and once a week takeaways, I don’t really eat processed (savoury) food or ready meals. Plus I don’t eat crisps because they’re rubbish.

Yeah, I’ll consider and try to monitor the general healthiness of what I’m eating but as for specifics, life’s too short.

Biggest offender would be soy sauce.

Any tomato in that?

I am well above and beyond my recommended dose, I oversalt everything. I put it on toast.

I honestly couldn’t give if a toss


I don’t really eat processed foods, everything is from scratch pretty much unless I’m getting a takeaway. I tend to cook without adding salt to things where feasible for the kids, and then add quite a bit to my own portion. I’m probably over because I’m a big eater, but it’s hard to really judge.

Sucks to be if!

I reckon I get exactly the recommended amount, bang on, every day.

AS A VEGETARIAN I’ve realised how much salt I used to eat. Like used to add additional salt to tins of beans etc and now find them overly salty as they are. Think cured meats were doing a number on my palate

Probably had half my recommended limit i reckon

Lot of salt in a properly made loaf of bread.

Today? Ever?

as much flaky salt as I need until stuff tastes gooder

You know when you have a dominos or whatever and your mouth is so so dry and gross after it cos of all the salt

Hate that

I love salt and add it to most things.

My nan was a salt obsessive and guess what they said when she went to the doctor a few years ago? That’s right, her salt levels were low :smiley: she ended up being put on salt tablets. I don’t tend to worry
