Watch out for salt in Chinese food

Chinese food bought as take-away from restaurants and supermarkets should have a warning on health because it contains too much salt.

This was stated by the Action on Salt group which analyzed more than 150 menus of Chinese food, concluding that they contain too much salt. As an example, the group referred to black beans sauce and said its salt is over the limit of one’s intake. It added that if one adds items with the food there is an increase in salt – for example an added egg increases 2.3g of salt, while sauces increase salt by 4 grams.

The group stated that there are few Chinese food restaurants which offer menus with less than 2 grams of salt. Prawn crackers and vegetable spring rolls contain between 0.8 and 1.4 grams of salt.

The Action on Salt group warned that too much salt may increase health problems, such as heart disease and stroke.
