One rice burger contains almost half the recommended daily intake for salt of 2,000 mg as prescribed by the World Health Organization (WHO), The Korea Herald reported on March 3, citing a survey conducted by Seoul City Hall and Consumers Korea. Rice burgers, often sold around schools and office areas, have an average 910.7 mg of sodium. Koreans on average consume 3,400 mg of sodium per day, nearly 50 percent more than the WHO’s recommended level. Seventeen of the 50 rice burger stores studied sold rice burgers each with at least 1,000 mg of sodium. Excessive sodium can lead to higher blood pressure and health risks.
