SAXA - Corporate Responsibility
Saxa acknowledges consumers are unsure about their salt consumption and urges Australians to use it responsibly and within the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) guidelines.

Saxa’s proprietary nutritional whitepaper, ‘A Little Pinch Will Do You’ by nutritionist Kathleen Alleaume suggests “75% of our salt intake comes from processed foods".

The NHMRC guidelines recommend that Australian adults (including pregnant and lactating women) consume less than 2,300 milligrams of ‘sodium’ per day or 6 grams (one-and-a-half teaspoons) of salt per day.

Saxa urges Australians to reduce their intake of processed and fast foods, maintain a healthy diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables and to adhere to the NHMRC’s guidelines of less than 6 grams (one-and-a-half teaspoons) of salt per day.

Alleaume says consumers concerned about their sodium intake should check the food labels and manage their salt intake by controlling the dose themselves.
