Low-Sodium Shopping at Whole Foods Market
According to the FDA, a low-sodium food contains 140 mg or less of sodium. Low-sodium diets contain fewer sodium containing foods than the typical diet. Most low-sodium diets limit sodium intake from 500 mg to 1500 mg daily. Individuals watching their sodium intake should also monitor their intake of fat, saturated fat and cholesterol - always check the Nutrition Facts panel on products you purchase.
