Report on dietary sodium intakes

The Department of Health has published the annual report on dietary sodium intakes, based on an assessment of the sodium content of urine samples collected from July 2011 to December 2011 from a representative sample of 547 adults.

This report continues a series of urinary sodium surveys across the general adult population in United Kingdom countries since 2000/01. The results are used by government to monitor progress towards the recommended maximum salt intake for adults of no more than 6g per person per day.
