Key Market Trends

Increasing Consumer Awareness about High Sodium Intake

Indian consumers, on an average, consume 10 grams of salt per day, which is double the World Health Organization's (WHO) recommendation of a maximum of five grams per day. The high salt consumption in the country is mostly because of the preference for spicy food, such as pickles, which have high salt content that serves as a preservative. This trend is ongoing, despite several measures launched in the recent years, to create public awareness about the ill effects of consuming excess salt. However, the shift of the population from rural to urban areas has led to an increase in the consumption of salts, such as mineral salts, largely followed by the product know-how and the benefits. The popularity of mineral salts is excessively linked with the way in which the consumers are connected to social media, where the prevalence of internet as a medium has led the first-world trends to witness a rapid development in India, over the past few years.
