15 Surprising Foods High in Sodium and What to Eat Instead

Canned Vegetables

Canned vegetables are convenient but pack their share of sodium. For example, a 1/2-cup (124-gram) serving of canned peas has 310 mg of sodium, or 13% of the RDI. Similarly, a 1/2-cup (122-gram) serving of canned asparagus packs 346 mg of sodium, or 15% of the RDI.

Draining and rinsing canned vegetables for a couple of minutes can reduce sodium content by 9–23%, depending on the vegetable. Alternatively, opt for plain, frozen vegetables, which are low in sodium yet convenient.
