Hypertension and its related complications are common health problems that can lead to multiple organ damage and death. Excessive salt intake plays very important role in the development of hypertension. Reducing salt intake prevents high blood pressure as well as cardiocerebral vascular diseases.
The experimental design is a multi-center, random-order, double-blind observational study to investigate the salty taste and salt intake in population-level.
A total of 606 individuals from four cities in China are recruited in this study. This study aims to explore the salty taste characterization and salt intake in participants who like or dislike spicy diet through questionnaire, spicy preference, salty perception and super-threshold as well as the 24-hour urinary sodium excretion.
