NORTHFIELD, Ill. — Kraft Foods says it will cut the salt in its products sold in North America by an average of 10 percent over the next two years as food makers try to appeal to health-conscious consumers.
Kraft said Wednesday that the move will reduce the sodium in Oscar Mayer Bologna by 17 percent and Easy Mac Cups by 20 percent. This comes on top of other cuts it has made in sodium levels in recent years.
Many other food makers — like Campbell Soup Co. — have cut the salt in their foods to appeal to shoppers who are increasingly tracing their health to what they eat.
