WHO global sodium benchmarks for different food categories
This publication produced by the WHO presents a set of global benchmarks for sodium levels in more than 60 food categories and outlines the process and method through which the WHO sodium benchmarks were established. Around the world, consumption of processed food is a rapidly increasing source of sodium. Sodium benchmarks are intended to be a starting point for countries and industry to reduce the sodium content in different processed foods, in turn improving diets and preventing chronic disease.
