The restaurant chain, which is based in Golden, Colorado, will reduce sodium in three dishes by 20% in the next several months and also remove salt shakers from the tables according to this article. In addition, all other dishes could have 15% less sodium in a few years.
While Boston Market is not a vegan restaurant, it is helping to lower the exposure of its customers to sodium which can benefit their health. The CDC indicates that 2,300 mg of sodium per day is the maximum recommended amount to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. The chain is helping its customers stay under this limit and hopefully set an example for the industry.
