Some brands of cheese are saltier than the water of the Atlantic Ocean
A study revealed that some popular brands of cheese are saltier than the water of the Atlantic Ocean.

175 cheeses were examined Sainsbury's Pecorino Romano was the saltiest at 7.4g per 100g, compared with just 2.5g per 100g for Atlantic seawater.

Kraft Dairylea Light cheese slices contained 2.8g of salt per 100g, meaning a single slice has 0.8g - which is about 40 per cent of a three-year-old's recommended daily intake, the campaign group Consensus Action on Salt warned.

Only 23 per cent of the brands studied showed the salt level per serving on the pack.

A spokesman for Kraft said: "Salt is an essential part of the cheese-making process, and levels vary between different types of cheese."
