The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will host a webinar June 21, 2016, to review its draft guidance detailing voluntary sodium reduction targets for the food industry. The draft short-term, two-year targets seek to decrease sodium intake to about 3,000 milligrams (mg) per day, while the long-term, 10-year targets seek to reduce sodium intake to 2,300 mg per day. The targets, which cover nearly 150 food categories, including meat and poultry, sandwiches and mixed dishes, are intended to complement existing efforts by food manufacturers, restaurants and food service operations to reduce sodium in foods.
