The 10 greatest sources of sodium

It’s clear that chips and snacks will contain salt, but many other foods — even those that are considered heathy — have greater content of salt than you would think. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 40 percent of sodium comes from the following 10 types of food:

  • Breads and rolls
  • Cold cuts and processed meats
  • Pizza
  • Poultry
  • Soup
  • Sandwiches, especially from fast-food restaurants
  • Cheese
  • Pasta dishes
  • Meat-mixed dishes, such as meat loaf with tomato sauce
  • Chips and other salty snacks
