I see that the interfering busybodies from CASH (Consensus Action on Salt and Health) have found another food source, allegedly loaded with salt, to whine about.
This time it turns out that a mug of hot chocolate can have more salt than a packet of ready salted crisps, according to CASH.
Seemingly Galaxy Ultimate Marshmallow Hot Chocolate powder had just over 0.6g of salt per 25g serving - or 2.5g per 100g - more than the 0.15g per 100g target.
Mars Chocolate, quite rightly pointed out that the drink was an "indulgent treat". However, as the BBC notes, but Public Health England (jumping on the CASH coattails) said more work was needed.
A standard 32.5g packet of Walkers Ready Salted Crisps contains 0.46g of salt.
All very well. However, as I have noted many times before, if you are healthy, drink a good amount of liquid and are not sedentary your body will excrete any excess salt via sweat and urine.
That aside, simply add extra sugar to counteract the salt!
