5 Foods With Scary Amounts Of Salt

Monitoring your sodium intake isn’t just avoiding those salty snack cravings.

Here are 5 foods that will shock you with how much salt they contain!

 1. Bacon

 A 2 ounce serving can contain over half a day’s worth of sodium.

 2. Pizza

 Eat two slices and you’ll take in an average 1,280 mg, over half of the 2,300 mg daily intake recommendation.

3. Bread

One slice contains an average 200 mg. Which adds up if you eat multiple slices per day.

4. Canned soup

 One cup can range from 100 mg to 1,000 mg of sodium. So, be sure to check the labels.

5. Chicken

Avoid ‘enhanced poultry’ which can contain as much as 440 mg per 4 ounce serving, 500% more than is naturally found in chicken.
