Major Australian Supermarket reduces salt in bakery products
One of Australia’s leading supermarkets, Coles, has significantly reduced the amount of salt in more than 40 of its bakery products. Leavened loaves of bread now contain as little as 274mg of sodium per 100g, down from 375mg per 100g in 2019. The reformulation occurred during February 2021, and consumers have not noticed any change in the taste. Coles sells over 400 million bread products each year and this reformulation will result in a reduction of approximately 76 tonnes of salt – equivalent of two semi-trailer truck loads. Read more here.
