FDA Releases Voluntary Sodium Targets for Restaurants, Packaged Food
The Food & Drug Administration released a draft guidance that outlines a series of “voluntary targets” for restaurants and packaged-food manufacturers to reduce sodium levels. In the guidance, the FDA set voluntary targets for 150 categories of food, including both restaurant and packaged foods. The FDA says its goal over time is to bring the average American’s sodium consumption to below 2,300 mg a day, down from a level of about 3,400 mg today (according to FDA estimates).
