Delia Smith's recipes attacked

7th April 2008

TV chef Delia Smith has been criticised over the high levels of salt in some recipes in her new book and series How to Cheat at Cooking.


Campaigners from the group Consensus Action on Salt and Health (CASH) say that some recipes such as “carbonara real quick? contain more than 7g of salt for each adult helping, and are over the recommended daily 6g limit for adults.

The book looks at how people can use ready-made foods with fresh ingredients to speed up the process but CASH warn many of the products recommended are already high in salt.
