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:
