All over the world, 1 out of 3.5 people after 40 years old would have high blood pressure. Elevated blood pressure results in subsequent cardiovascular disease, stroke, and kidney diseases and is highly related to salt amount absorption in food

Survey shows that people in Taiwan often over-consumes sodium by 2 to 3 times more than daily need. Nutritionists advocate that spoons commonly used consists of 6 grams of salt, and 2400 mg of sodium, is sufficienct for normal daily consumption. Nevertheless, if daily salt consumption is decreased by 6 grams per day, systolic pressure can be lowered by 2 to 8 mmHg.

This spoon is designed to solve the difficulty faced when deciding how much salt to use in daily life. The smaller size end is designed for children consumption corresponding to age (according to british food standard). The other larger end is for normal adults and different degrees of high blood pressure and/or kidney disease populations.

Using color-coded circles as well as symbols and numbers on the back of the spoon serves as efficient reminder for appropriate salt amount.
