Canned Tomatoes & Sodium
Shelf Space: Canned Tomatoes
Have you checked the sodium content of diced tomatoes lately? If not, you may want to take a look next time you are at the grocery store.
M.E.’s Shelf Space Picks:
Aylmer and Eden Organic have “No Salt Added” products. Purchasing either of these options can cut out upwards of 395mg of sodium per 1/2 cup serving. And remember the recommended intake per day is 2300mg, do you really want to get sodium from tomatoes?!
Don’t believe me, see it for yourself! The below were products are what I found at Metro Grocery Store (Ontario), all sodium values are based on a 1/2 cup serving.
Aylmer No Salt Added – 20mg
Eden Organic No Salt Added - 5mg
Alymer Regular – 290mg
Primo – 400mg
Unico – 370mg
Selection – 160mg
