Shockingly high-sodium foods

This Week's Tip
Shockingly high-sodium foods

You consume sodium every single day, and that's a good thing! Our bodies need the mineral sodium to help maintain water/electrolyte balance and blood volume. Unfortunately, as it's often said, too much of a good thing (sodium in this case) can have negative effects on your health. A diet high in sodium is strongly correlated with an increased risk for high blood pressure, which contributes to heart disease and stroke.

You may be surprised to learn that most of the sodium in our diets doesn't even come from the salt shaker: It's hiding in foods we eat every day. Some of the top salt shockers include:
  • Mini pretzels (1,029 mg in 10 mini rounds)
  • Frozen pepperoni pizza (902 mg in one slice)
  • Dill pickles (881 mg in one medium pickle)
  • Canned peas (428 mg in 1/2 cup)
  • Bacon (303 mg per slice)
