How much sodium can we consume per day?

Currently experts recommend not consuming more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium a day for healthy individuals , and up to 1,500 milligrams daily if we suffer from kidney disease, diabetes or hypertension. To make the calculation, we must not only take into account the sodium contained in the table salt with which we season our meals, but also the salt present in processed and packaged foods .

Rachel Wagner, a dietitian at the University of Cincinnati (USA) says that most people are unaware of the "hidden" sources of partner, such as tomato sauces, salad dressings, cheese, cereals and certain condiments such as soy sauce. Just one tablespoon of soy sauce can contain 1,800 milligrams of sodium.

Eating fresh meat and fish, and checking that packaged or frozen vegetables do not have added salt, are two of the tips that Wagner offers to avoid consuming more salt than is considered healthy.
