SODIUM SCAVENGER HUNT -- TIPS FOR SHAKING THE SALT HABIT

To help consumers avoid suspect salt-laden foods while shopping, Foster Farms expert nutritionist sleuths Nancy Bennett MS, RD, CDE and Manuel Villacorta, MS, RD took a trip the supermarket to uncover hidden sources of salt by aisle. Here is just a taste of what they found:

-- Dessert -- One serving of chocolate pudding has more than 20% of the RDA of sodium for adults: as much as a dill pickle!

Tips for Shaking the Salt Habit:

-- Eat fresh as much as possible, especially when it comes to vegetables. Avoid dried and processed meats.
