The one thing you need to swap to halve your daily salt intake

Swapping your soy sauce could halve your daily salt intake, a new report has found.

VicHealth dietitian Jen Reimer told Ross and John a tablespoon of the average soy sauce contains 61 per cent of our recommended daily salt intake.

“We just want people to be aware just how loaded with salt it is,” Jen said.

“Get back to using natural flavours, herbs, spices, lemon, garlic, ginger, these are wonderful flavours!”
