SALTS is part of the DIET programme. The aim of SALTS (Salt ALTernatives Study) is to understand the effect a 12-week dietary salt reduction programme will have on systolic blood pressure for people with high blood pressure. Participants will be randomly allocated to two groups receiving either the dietary salt reduction programme (SaltSwitch smartphone app + dietary alternative salt) or general information about heart-healthy eating. For more information about how to sign up for SALTS, please email us.
