15 Surprising Foods High in Sodium and What to Eat Instead


Ham is high in sodium because salt is used to cure and flavor the meat. A 3-ounce (85-gram) serving of roasted ham averages 1,117 mg of sodium, or 48% of the RDI. There’s no sign of food companies cutting back on how heavily they salt this popular meat. In a recent national sampling of US foods, researchers found that ham was 14% higher in sodium than in the previous analysis.

Consider using ham only as an occasional condiment in small amounts rather than eating a full serving.
