According to tests carried out by the medical campaign group Consensus Action on Salt and Health, sausages contain more salt than crisps.

(Eighty per cent of the 300 types of sausage tested failed to meet Government guidelines on salt levels, and eating just two bangers would give adults more than half the recommended daily intake of 6g or less. People should look at the packaging, and check that the contents contain 1g or less per 100g – or 0.5g per sausage, which is the same as a bag of crisps. As if I needed another reason not to eat them!)
