For many years scientists and nutritionists have debated the health impact of too much salt in the diet, and a consensus is now emerging that high sodium intake can indeed have harmful effects, particular on the heart and blood pressure. Formulating and promoting low sodium foods is not a new phenomenon - the low sodium label graces many soups, cereals and packaged meats - but the warnings from health professionals and the ever-changing diet concerns of the American consumer may elevate low sodium to a status equal to that of low fat, carbs and sugar.
This new Packaged Facts reports examines the market for low sodium foods and beverages, examining a wide variety of product categories and marketers (including Campbell, PepsiCo., Kraft/Nabsico, Conagra (Healthy Choice), General Mills (Progresso)), and the impact these efforts will have on the consumer and marketplace.
