Subway says it will cut the sodium by 28% in some of its sandwiches, becoming the latest in the food industry to respond to consumer and government health pressures.
The restaurant chain said Monday that it will reduce the sodium in its "Fresh Fit" sandwiches, which are the chain's low-fat menu alternatives. Subway has already removed 15% of sodium across the board in its core sandwich menu.
Subway, based in Milford, Conn., said the reduced-sodium offerings will eliminate 450 tons of sodium each year compared with sodium levels three years ago.
