Why do Kabrita formulas contain salt?

Most of the salt found in Kabrita is from the sodium that is naturally present in goat milk. Sodium is required by the human body for various functions such as the fluid balance and muscle contraction. In order to comply with nutritional requirements, a minimum amount of sodium must be present in infant formula. New European legislation requires that salt is stated on the label. The salt content is calculated by multiplying the sodium (Na) content by 2.5.
