Processed Cheese

Processed cheeses, including pre-sliced American cheese and loaf-like processed cheese like Velveeta, tend to run higher in sodium than natural cheese. This is partly because processed cheese is made with the help of emulsifying salts, such as sodium phosphate, at high temperatures, which makes a consistent, smooth product. A 1-ounce (28-gram) serving of American cheese has 377 mg of sodium, or 16% of the RDI, while the same amount of loaf cheese has 444 mg of sodium, or 19% of the RDI.

Instead, opt for lower-sodium, natural cheeses, such as Swiss or mozzarella.
