Sodium Reduction in Processed Foods in Canada: An Evaluation of Progress toward Voluntary Targets from 2012 to 2016

Nutrients In 2012, in an effort to reduce the amount of sodium (salt) in the food supply, Health Canada established voluntary sodium reduction targets for 94 processed food categories following consultation with the food industry, health sector and research experts. This report summarizes the progress made by food manufacturers from 2012-2016 to meet these voluntary sodium reduction targets. Almost half of food categories made no progress in lowering sodium levels, while most other categories made only some progress. About 14 % met all the targets set by Health Canada.
