    Sodium levels in food has been getting a lot of publicity lately due to the high levels of hidden salt in most foods. It is not just in “salty” snacks like chips and pretzels, many common foods contain levels of salt that can have grave consequences for our health.

    The government recommends that people should consume at most 2,300 mg of sodium each day, about the equivalent of one teaspoon. This breaks down to less than 800 mg per meal (not including snacks). For a society that has salt shakers on every table, we’re not allowed very much! Low-sodium diets may take a little getting used to, but the health benefits (lower blood pressure, lower risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, and kidney stones) are well worth it.
