Sarson's Worcester sauce 'established since 1794' comes out of the bottle where you want it...on the plate...rich and spicy.

This salt business gets a bit silly at times.

I had a long discussion with the Diabetes nurse when she said I shouldn't eat Marmite as it was 'Full of Salt'

OK, so it has something like 19% salt content per 100gm, but who eats 100gms at a time? Average serving is about 2gms per slice of toast or 0.38gms, hardly anywhere near exceeding your daily recommended 'dose'. So as long as you don't eat vast amounts every day there's no harm in it and eminently better than lots of sugary marmalade for a Diabetic.

Its the same with Restuarant/Canteen food. They cut out/down the salt during preparation which then prompts the customer to add salt at the table, and probably using more than is good for them.

There was a report last week about Bread having too much salt. Bread dough of course needs a certain amount to produce a good loaf. Bread made without salt is dense and doesn't taste good. It is an essential ingredient.

She was just being polite, you shouldn't eat Marmite because it's vile

I tried marmite a month ago.It is not the same as bovril.marmite is ok to season a home-made soup.Half a teaspoon per gallon of soup is quite enough!

If there's a 19% salt content it will be the same in percentage terms whatever the portion size. As you say however, the average portion of Marmite is so small it doesn't really matter. As long as you don't eat too much you'll be fine.
