Research findings reveal that salt intake needs to be substantially reduced for children and people with hypertension. A preference for salty food can form poor eating habits that continue into adulthood, resulting in health problems such as cardiovascular disease later in life.
The Hourglass Salt Shaker can help one to control their daily salt intake by restricting the flow from the shaker. A chamber within the shaker holds the salt. When the shaker is inverted, salt will flow through an hourglass ‘funnel’ into the main volume. Only this restricted serving of salt will be released from the shaker when it is re-inverted and shaken over one’s meal.
