We all know that too much salt is bad for you. Most people who are taking in too much salt don’t get it from the shaker. It comes from hidden salts in foods that we don’t associate with salty flavors. Yahoo Health recently ran the top ten hidden sources of salt:
• Salad dressing, dips, ketchup, mustard, soy sauce
• Cheeses
• Canned soups, stews and vegetables
• Breakfast cereals
• Bagels and baked goods
• Cured, smoked and deli meats
• Anything labeled low salt. The law says it must be 25% lower than regular product. If the regular product is very high the low version is still high.
• Fast food and French fries
• Products labeled “Low Fat” or “Heart Healthy” uses salt to make the product taste good.
• Some desserts like puddings and cream pies
