Black garlic salt: Discover it

Salt is indispensable for life, but it is also very bad for your health if consumed in excess, which is where our black garlic salt comes in.

  • We need small amounts of salt for the body to function properly and it is essential for vital processes such as:
  • Controlling the amount of water in the human body, maintaining the pH of the blood.
  • Regulating body fluids.
  • Help the body stay hydrated by introducing water into the cells.
  • Helping to transmit nerve impulses and muscle relaxation.

How much salt do we consume?

Due to the food preservation properties of salt and the current indiscriminate use of salt by the food industry, our salt consumption is much higher than what is needed for good health.

Due to the food preservation properties of salt and the current indiscriminate use of salt by the food industry, our salt consumption is much higher than what is needed for good health.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) and other international health institutions recommend for the general population with a healthy lifestyle and without prolonged exertion, an average consumption of 5g of salt per day, which is equivalent to one teaspoon of full teaspoon of salt (coffee size) or 2g of sodium per day and is guaranteed to be iodised salt*.

– Salt = sodium x 2.5 (To calculate the salt content of a food, multiply the grams of sodium indicated on the label by 2.5).

In Spain, current data published by AESAN (Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition) on the salt consumption of the Spanish population indicate that 9.8g of salt is ingested per day, which is much higher than the recommended amount. To achieve this target of 5g/day, the current salt intake needs to be almost halved.
