Salt Awareness Week - sprinkle seaweed instead of salt

From 9 - 15 March 2020, it is Salt Awareness Week. This week also marks a year since we launched our Seaweed Seasoning as a healthier alternative to the salt pot. Twelve months on, and it’s one of our best sellers.

Too much salt is a serious thing. Action Salt states that "a high salt diet raises our blood pressure, increasing the risk of having a stroke or developing heart disease" and that it is also "linked to osteoporosis, kidney disease and stomach cancer."
