Food Reformulation RIVM

Feb 19, 2016· Food reformulation is the reduction of salt and calories from sugar and saturated fat in processed foods. The foods we consume on a daily basis, such as bread, cheese, sausages, drinks, soup, and cereals contain nutrients and energy. There is considerable variation in the levels of salt, calories, saturated fat, and sugar within food groups.

Reformulation of products to reduce sodium: Salt Reduction
