High Sodium Food List

Many items found in the grocery store can be quite high in sodium. Renal patients can benefit from limiting their sodium intake to 2000-3000 mg per day.  Sodium is required on all food labels, so you are encouraged to read the food label for the sodium content. Generally, individual items with a sodium content higher than 200 mg per serving should be counted as a high sodium choice. Use "Low sodium " products with caution as they may contain high amounts of potassium. Consult your renal dietitian if you are unsure of any product.
