The Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (Vitenskapskomiteen for mattrygghet, VKM), has at the request of the Norwegian Food Safety Authority (Mattilsynet), conducted a benefit and risk assessment for human health of increasing potassium by replacement of sodium chloride with potassium chloride in industrial food products. The assessment includes intake calculation for three different scenarios for replacement of sodium in sodium chloride with potassium; 30:70, 50:50 and 70:30. The calculations were based on the national food consumption surveys Norkost 3 (18-70 years), Småbarnskost (2-year old), and Ungkost (4-, 9- and 13-year old).
