Trivial in and of itself, yes:
Heinz, the American company which bought the famous British brand in 2005, has changed the celebrated concoction that includes tomatoes, malt vinegar, molasses, dates, tamarind and secret spices to reduce the salt content.
The previous version of the brown sauce, which has become synonymous with fry-up breakfasts and bacon sandwiches, used to contain 2.1g of salt per 100g. The new version contains just 1.3g.
Changing the HP sauce recipe? On the very dodgy salt in the diet advice?
You know, the one where if you\’ve functioning kidneys then how much salt you ingest doesn\’t matter as any excess is excreted?
Reminds me of the way that Marmite was banned from the list of things that can be advertised to kids because of the salt content. They bansturbators not realising (or perhaps not caring) that content per 100 grammes isn\’t a very good guide to anything at all when people consume it in 5 gramme portions.
So we\’ve entirely diodgy science, being used to impose the wishes of the Puritans upon us. And one day we\’ll rise up and massacre them all as a result.
Well, we should at least.
