I found this article in the Guardian very interesting so I thought I would pass it on.

I agree with the dairy board spokesman- it is there for preservative and technical reasons. I would be more worried about the amount of fat they contain rather than the salt. As always, a good mixed diet is the key, unless you have to change what you eat on medical advice.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

The other alternative is to make your own, and then you control the salt added depending on what is really needed in the mix. cheers Goes for the bread too so you can have a low salt bread if you want for the cheese sandwich (having said that, omitting salt altogether is not recommended by me - it doesn't taste good from experience flaming_nora)
