CSPI filed these comments in support of FDA’s proposal to “horizontally” amend all standards of identity (SOI) that specify salt as a required or optional ingredient to permit the use of safe and suitable salt substitutes across an array of standardized foods. This proposed rule has the potential to affect 140 foods including cheeses, breads, canned vegetables, and condiments, and is part of a larger effort by FDA to reduce sodium in the U.S. food supply.
