Sodium Reduction

IFT's Web-based content on sodium reduction was designed and will be continually maintained to educate and engage key regulatory, scientific, practitioner, and consumer stakeholders in identifying and disseminating the latest science and best practices for reducing dietary sodium across the food supply.  Our aim is to elevate the role of food science and technological innovations and challenges in sodium reduction initiatives, which are currently being developed, implemented, and evaluated across the globe.  Sodium reduction initiatives strive to reduce the consumption of dietary sodium, a modifiable risk factor for hypertension—the leading cause of heart disease and stroke.  Please contact Will Fisher at 202-330-4977 or wfisher@ift.org to learn more about IFT's contributions to reducing the consumption of dietary sodium.
