The Pocket Guide to Low Sodium Foods by Bobbie Mostyn
An indispensable reference for those watching their salt intake, the expanded third edition of this nutritional sodium counter is small enough to put in a pocket or purse so wise food choices can be made at the grocery store or while dining out. Intended for the estimated 76 million Americans with high blood pressure, Menieres disease, and severe kidney disease, this guide addresses which supermarket products and fast-food items have the lowest sodium counts and simplifies choices by listing only low-sodium products. Each food is analyzed by calories, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, carbohydrates, fiber, sugar, and sodium. Also included are brief descriptions of each nutrient and its effect on blood pressure, explanations of food labeling guidelines, and clarification of nutritional content claims.
