The recommended daily -- DAILY, for a fully-grown adult -- sodium intake is 2300 milligrammes.
I don't have all the info, but just TWO TEASPOONS of Bovril chicken broth is 930 mg. About two and a half times that is your entire recommended daily intake.
Fat content -- let's not even go there. A packet of potato chips, salt and vinegar, comes out to a whopping 341 mg of sodium and 14 grammes of fat for THIRTY ONE CHIPS.
A single can of Coke contains 45 mg of sugar -- that's ELEVEN TABLESPOONS OF SUGAR IN A CAN.
But the numbers lie. They always disguise it as "per portion of xx mg" which always confuses the average consumer. 17 G fat on a can of soup, but when you read the fine print, that means a quarter of the whole fucking can. FIFTY-SIX GRAMMES of fat for a single can of soup. That's more than two Big Macs with the cheese piled on.
It's like airline advertising. $120, Montreal to New York! What they don't mention is the extra $230 taxes, nav fees and airport taxes, per person.
It's fucked and I don't like being taken for a sucker. We should take the fuckers down like the cockroaches they are.
