Introduction to Salt Analysis Guide — methods of salt determination in food, tips and hints to improve titration and weighing techniques.
Elevated sodium in the diet is a risk factor for high blood pressure, and can contribute to the development of cardiovascular diseases. An aspect of the World Health Organization's (WHO) plan to reduce sodium consumption worldwide is the implementation of clear nutritional labels, reinforcing the importance of accurate testing for foods and beverages.
In this guide we outline a range of techniques that may be used for sodium and salt analysis using standard laboratory equipment, and briefly touch on their pros and cons. Additionally, we present analytical methods for more than twenty products of various consistencies, along with practical information toward method development and sample preparation.
