Filed under: Food and NutritionIt continues to astound me on how much sodium is in the average processed food product these days. With the nutritional content and most everything else being gone from most processed foods these days -- along with the need for long shelf lives -- sodium seems to be the key to taste.
After all, hydrogenated oils, MSG and sodium are all additives to enhance shelf life and taste for what are considered "dead" foods from natural health advocates. But the actual level of sodium inserted into some foods is plain unhealthy.
Would you like to have 1,500 milligrams of sodium in one sitting? That is more than half of the suggested maximum daily intake -- and way too much for a single meal.
