"Channel 4's Dispatches programme examined products from five of Britain's largest sandwich companies - Boots, Greggs, Subway, Pret a Manger and Marks and Spencer.
Researchers measured the levels of fat, saturates and salt in 100 sandwiches using the Food Standards Agency's traffic light system.
According to the FSA, a red light indicates that the food is "high in something we should be trying to cut down on" and should only be eaten occasionally."
"Subway came bottom of the list in terms of salt content with 93 per cent of the sandwiches tested earning a red light.
The retailer's foot-long 'Meatball Marinara' contained 9.4g of salt, equivalent to 18 packets of ready-salted crisps.
Pret a Manger came third, followed by M&S and Greggs. Boots again faired best, with 7 per cent of its sandwiches earning a red light for salt."
