Salt Mountains

Infographic

Do you know the amount of Salt in processed food?

We all hear about the calories and fat content, but salt seems to be the hidden health risk – it can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease. This infographic was created to show those levels. Based around the idea of salt piles, wanted to show the relationships of salt content between the different kinds of processed food. For me the surprise was the amount of salt within soup, never realized before. Although triangles are not the best way to compare data, it is used to in-force the idea of there being mountains. Think overall the graphic illustrates the message of there being to much salt content in food.
