Study shows pizza is worse than we thought
By: Amy Dusseldorp, Nutritionist
Just 3 slices of takeaway pizza can contain the entire daily salt intake for an adult which is around 4 grams. The pizza with the highest sodium was Pizza Hut's BBQ Meatlover's which provided 327 per cent of the daily sodium intake at 13 grams!
High sodium intake has been linked to raised blood pressure, which in turn contributes to a variety of illnesses such as heart attack and stroke. It's the hidden salt we need to watch out for, so aim to buy less packaged and processed food and use herbs and spices to flavour food instead of salt.
