Bread can be a sneaky sodium source, but low sodium bread options are available at your local grocery store and online.
Bread was not on my radar when we started our low sodium journey. When doctors told me my husband would need to be on a 1500-mg per day sodium limit, I immediately thought about the salt I used for cooking, prepared and fast foods, and salty snacks. Only after doing a little research did I discover that bread was one of the Salty Six, six foods we love that are high in salt.
One slice of traditional, store-bought sliced sandwich bread can contain more than 200 mg. If your sodium limit is 1500 mg, one sandwich could easily add up to more than 500 mg.
Baking bread, if you can, is an excellent option because you can control the ingredients you’re using, but if you need the convenience of store-bought bread, there are some zero, low, and lower sodium options.
