I don't know where our salt shaker ended up during our last few moves. Seldom used it. Normally I opt for no salt added products when available because they taste better. But I don't check the labels for sodium content on many foods.

Tsalagi, I was not the least bit surprised. Sodium used to preserve canned, frozen and other prepared foods. The high levels of it is nothing new. Have you ever been in a restaurant and watched people lavishly salt food prior to tasting? Many people automatically reach for the salt shaker because in some cases, potatoes, eggs, meats and veggies have no salt in them when served.

People read labels however, some pay no attention to the sodium content. I have found that frozen foods low in calories are high in sodium. Those with low sodium is high in calories so you are in a no win situation because you cannot control the amount of salt you are getting in the prepared meal.
