Australian Cereal And Bread Makers Agree To Cut Salt Content

March 22, 2010: 03:59 AM EST
Leading Australian cereal and bread makers have agreed with the government to reduce salt content in their products gradually over the next three to four years. Participants in a “dialogue” convened by government health authorities and a group representing the food industry settled on a sodium target of 400 milligrams per 100 grams for ready to eat cereals, breads, rolls and buns. Cereal makers Kellogg’s, Sanitarium, etc., set a target date of 2014, while bread manufacturers George Weston Foods, Goodman Fielder Baking and others agreed on 2013. An official of the industry group noted that George Weston had already removed 342 tons of salt from products since 2009, despite technical challenges, and other food companies were looking to reduce salt in “processed meats, soups, sauces and snack foods.”
