ABSTRACT

The salt content of 15 snack foods was analyzed using autoanalysis and titration methods. The salt content was alarmingly high in certain snack foods. However, intake is dependent on the quantity of the snack foods consumed and the frequency of consumption. Higher salt values were obtained by autoanalyzer. Variability was observed in the values obtained by both methods. Autoanalysis has good potential for use in rapid salt determination, particularly for use in quality control and sodium labeling.
