How much salt is too much?

Experts warn against adding uncooked salt to your food. When the salt is cooked, its iron structure changes and so it becomes easier for the body to absorb. PHOTO/INTERNET

What you need to know:

  • Many recipes call for salt, and many people also salt their food at the table. Condiments also may contain sodium. One tablespoon (15 millilitres) of soy sauce, for example, has about 1,000mg of sodium.

If you are not sure how much sodium your diet should include, talk to your doctor or dietitian.
