Kale from one supermarket may be up to two times as much as salt as that of the other. This was noticed by the Consumers. The organization wants tougher measures to come to for each other to get the customers less salt eat.
“The current self-regulation for reducing salt do not put any flesh on the bones”, according to the consumer organisation. They call the Second Room on certain opinions about zoutverlaging binding.
“Manufacturers always come up with smoezen as a ’long term process’, ‘smaakgewenning’ and ‘houdbaarheidsproblematiek’. But our research shows that a strong reducing salt is not quite as difficult as manufacturers want us to believe. If one manufacturer can do it, why the other not?’, says Bart Combée, director of the Consumers ‘ association.
His organization researched the salinity in 181 A-brand and private – label products, Albert Heijn, Aldi, Jumbo, Lidl and Plus.
