A study recently published by Hye-Kyung Park et al has reviewed sodium reduction progress in South Korea. A National Plan to Reduce Sodium Intake was implemented in South Korea in 2012, this plan has the aim of reducing population sodium intake by 20% by 2020 (3,900 mg/d) by a range of intervention activities including; consumer awareness raising, increasing accessibility to low sodium foods, voluntary reformulation of processed foods and the development of low-sodium recipes. Two years post implementation, authors found that sodium consumption had decreased by 24%, as estimated from 24-hr diet recalls. Authors concluded that the multi-component intervention had been effective, and that reinforcement of the national policy is needed to further reduce sodium intake beyond the 2020 goal.
