Salt levels in meat alternatives – Australia

On the 10th of September, the Victorian Salt Reduction Partnership released a report written by The George Institute for Global Health on the salt content of meat alternatives in Australia. The research revealed some meat free products contain up to half a day’s worth of salt in one serve. Meat-free bacon, felafels and meat-free sausages were the highest salt categories. Some falafels contained 10 times more salt than others, while some meat-free burgers were 6 times saltier than others. The full media release and report can be found here.
