Letter: Pass the salt

AUSTRALIAN SUPERMARKETS offer a wide choice of processed food such as bread and cereals with low sodium content - less than 250mg per 100g of product. This choice is not available in the UK where the average amount in bread in supermarkets is 400mg/100g. A well-known cereal manufacturer produces low-sodium cornflakes in Australia but only produces cornflakes with high sodium content (900mg/100g) for the UK market. Australia is years ahead of Britain in providing real choice of food for a healthy diet. When will Britain catch up?
