Most vegan restaurant meals have high levels of salt, research finds
Action for Salt says 80% would attract a red traffic light label and some contain more than daily recommended intake
Four out of five “healthy sounding” plant-based meals served by major UK restaurant chains would attract a red traffic light label for their high levels of salt, according to research that claims many dishes are hidden under a “vegan health halo”.
Action on Salt found that three out of five plant-based restaurant meals surveyed contained 3g or more of salt, half of an adult’s maximum daily recommended intake. Nineteen meals contained 6g or more.
