Watch for Sneaky Salt Sources
One of the recommendations of the 2010 Dietary Guidelines pertains to the amount of salt consumed by Americans. By taking time to read the Nutrition Facts label we can see where our dietary salt comes from and why it is hard to avoid. Many processed foods contain salt in varying amounts.
Tips to watch your sodium intake include:- Avoid buying meat labeled “enhanced with broth” or similar claims.
- Look for low-sodium products like tuna, low sodium soups, and no salt added tomatoes.
