Yesterday we said that both normal people and patients with kidney disease need to pay attention to the intake of sodium in their daily diet. And teach you to understand the sodium content in food through the nutrition label. Let’s talk about it today, how to look at this nutrition label.

Yesterday article:Sodium=salt, how long have you been wrong?

For example: The following are the nutrition labels for a brand of noodles and soy sauce.

At first glance, the sodium content is almost the same. A closer look can be made to the sodium content of each serving (about 10.7g), while the noodle label is 100g sodium. If converted to the same 100g noodles and thick soup, the sodium content is 1g and 77g respectively! ! !

This is the first trick of the business. Do you think it is over here? However, it does not.

Different foods, we eat different amounts each time, I will eat 100-150g every time, but I will not put 100g of soup, I will only put 1 piece into the soup. . Then what should I count?

The noodles are very simple, 100g contains 1g of sodium, and 150g of sodium is also 1.5g.

What about soup?

Look carefully at the small characters below. A piece of thick soup is actually 3 servings, still 3 X 772mg=2316mg, which is 2.3g sodium.

Speaking of this, I have to praise the “tact” of the business.

In fact, most businesses are still very kind. The content of each 100g of the standard can be roughly judged according to the amount of food eaten each time.

Of course, not only sodium, but also other nutrients on the food nutrition label can be used by this method.

By comparing, we found that the main sources of sodium are condiments, processed foods, biscuits and snacks. Everyone should pay more attention to it in order to avoid excessive intake of sodium and endanger health.

Finally, we also collected a large amount of sodium in the market for common foods and seasonings (which has been hidden from the manufacturer). In order to facilitate the comparison, we will convert them into 100g each. It is helpful for everyone to choose healthy food.

*In the low sodium salt, potassium chloride is used instead of some sodium chloride, so the potassium content is high and it is not suitable for patients with kidney disease. .
