The Sodium Content of
Your Food
Anne C. Marsh, Ruth N. Klippstein,
and Sybil D. Kaplan*


Introduction

Sodium is a mineral element
necessary for proper body func-
tion. It is involved in maintaining
blood volume and cellular osmotic
pressure and in transmitting nerve
impulses.
Body needs for sodium are not
great. Intakes of 1,100 to 3,300
milligrams of sodium per day are
considered safe and adequate for
the healthy adult by the Food and
Nutrition Board of the National
Academy of Sciences-National
Research Council. Most dietary
sodium is found in the form of
sodium chloride, the compound we
know as table salt, which is 40
percent sodium and 60 percent
chloride. One teaspoon of salt con-
tains approximately 2,000 milli-
grams of sodium. Current estimates
of daily sodium intake by individ-
uals are between 2,300 to 6,900
milligrams (about 1 to 3 teaspoons
or 6 to 17 grams of salt).
Many Americans consume more
sodium than they need. "Nutrition
and Your Health-Dietary Guide-
lines for Americans," published
jointly by the Departments of Agri-
culture and Health, Education, and
Welfare in February 1980, suggests
that people should "avoid [eating]
too much sodium."
Excess sodium in the diet is
believed to contribute to high blood
pressure or hypertension in some

people. Control of body weight and
restriction of sodium intake from
foods, drinks, and drugs are among
treatments prescribed by physicians
to control high blood pressure.
This publication provides a table
showing the sodium content of
common foods (table 1), to help
you figure out how much sodium is
in your diet. Table 2 lists the
sodium content of selected non-
prescription drugs.
In addition to the salt we know-
ingly sprinkle on our food, many
foods contain sodium as a part of
their normal chemical composition.
Household staples like baking
powder and baking soda are sodium
compounds. Some popular flavoring
agents high in sodium are soy
sauce, worcestershire sauce, catsup,
pickles, olives, and garlic, onion,
and celery salts.
Many processed foods contain
added sodium. Salted or brined
meats and fish are obviously higher
in salt content than the uncured
forms. Many canned vegetables are
packed in a salt solution or brine.
Frozen vegetables are usually
processed without added salt. How-
ever, starchy vegetables like lima
beans and peas are frequently
sorted in brine before freezing.
Frozen vegetables with added
sauces, mushrooms, or nuts are
higher in sodium than the plain
varieties.
Canned and frozen fruits are not
usually processed with added salt,
but some companies add small
amounts of salt to prevent darken-
ing of some fruits and to enhance
flavor of applesauce. Some canned













and frozen fruits, and most canned
whole tomatoes, are dipped in
sodium hydroxide so that they can
be easily peeled. This process
causes these foods to have higher
sodium levels than are found in the
fresh foods. Canned and bottled
citrus drinks are sometimes buffered
with sodium citrate. Sodium ion
exchange is used in processing
some wines to reduce sediment and
clarify the product.
Chemical ingredients which con-
tain sodium may be added during
food processing. Some examples of
these ingredients are monosodium
glutamate or MSG (a flavor
enhancer); sodium saccharin (a
sweetener); sodium phosphates
emulsifierss, stabilizers, buffers);
sodium citrate (a buffer); sodium ca-
seinate (a thickener and binder);
and sodium benzoate and sodium
nitrite (preservatives).
It is especially important for per-
sons on salt-restricted diets to read
ingredient labels carefully to see
which, if any, sodium compounds
have been included in processed
foods. Those items listed first on the
label are present in the largest
amounts. Nutritional information on
labels of some foods, such as break-
fast cereals, shows sodium values.
To allow for variability among pack-
ages, cereal manufacturers may
show higher values on packages of
cereal than those shown in the
table.


Some over-the-counter drugs, par-
ticularly antacids, contain sodium in
significant amounts. Read labels
carefully and ask your physician
about using such drugs. Refer to
table 2 for a list of selected non-
prescription drugs and the amount
of sodium each contains.
Many patients with high blood
pressure take diuretics and are ad-
vised to increase their potassium in-
take to replenish that lost in the
increased urine volume. Bananas
and orange juice are frequently
recommended for their potassium
content. Most fresh vegetables,
fruits, legumes, and uncured meats
are also good sources of potassium
and add only small amounts of
sodium to the diet. If you are think-
ing of using a potassium substitute
for common salt, you should con-
sult your physician before doing so.
Another source of sodium is
drinking water. The sodium content
of drinking water varies consider-
ably throughout the country. This
variation also affects the sodium
content of soft drinks and beer pro-
duced and bottled at different loca-
tions.
Water softeners raise the sodium
content of water-the harder the
water, the greater amount of
sodium needed to soften it. In most
States, the State department of
public health can supply informa-
tion on the sodium content of
public water supplies and provide
help in getting water from indi-
vidual wells or water supplies
analyzed.













This bulletin updates sodium
values listed in "Composition of
Foods," Agriculture Handbook No.
8 (1963), and includes values for
additional food items. The values
were obtained from published
reports of laboratory analyses that
used flame photometry, atomic
absorption, or emission spectro-
scopy to find the sodium content of
foods. These reports include data
from industrial, scientific, and tech-
nical literature.
Because some products vary con-
siderably in sodium content, table 1
gives representative values. Sodium
values shown reflect current proc-
essing practices and typical product
formulas. If these practices and for-


mulas are changed, sodium values
may change also.
Values given in table 1 are for un-
salted products, unless specified.
Cooked items have been prepared
using unsalted water, even though
the manufacturers' instructions may
call for salt. Canned vegetable
values are for total can contents of
solids and liquids. The values
reported are for common house-
hold measures of the foods and in-
clude metric equivalents.
Some labels may express sodium
content in grams or milligrams.
Here's how to convert these
measurements and also how to
measure the amount of sodium in
salt.


Salt and sodium conversions


Grams to milligrams ............ Multiply weight in grams by 1,000

Sodium into salt
(NaCI) equivalent ............ Milligrams of sodium content
+.40 = milligrams of salt

Salt into sodium ............... Milligrams of salt x.40 = milli-
grams of sodium

Sodium in milligrams to sodium
in milliequivalents ........... Milligrams of sodium + 23 (atomic
weight of sodium) = milli-
equivalents of sodium

Milliequivalents of sodium to
milligrams of sodium .......... Milliequivalents of sodium x 23 =
milligrams of sodium

'Medical prescriptions are often given as milliequivalents (mEq).
