New Research reveals huge differences in sodium contents of identical pizzas around the world (March 2011)
- WASH surveyed the sodium and salt content of over 500 pizza products available around the world from well known international pizza outlets such as Pizza Hut, Dominoes, Eagle Boys and Papa Johns, as well as pizzas available in supermarkets and grocery stores.
- Not one product surveyed had the same salt content around the world
