Barbecue sauce, like most processed and pre-packaged foods, can be a sneaky source of sodium. It’s not a food we think of as being salty, but sodium is added to enhance the flavor and as a preservative to extend the food’s shelf life. One two-tablespoon serving of Famous Dave’s Rich & Sass BBQ Sauce contains 360 mg sodium, and two tablespoons of Kraft Slow Simmered Original BBQ Sauce contains 350 mg sodium. If you’re on a 1500 mg daily limit, the sauce alone would take a huge chunk out of your day, so finding a tasty version is key.

If you have the time and energy to make your own sauce, my Homemade Low Sodium BBQ Sauce with Brown Sugar is simple, delicious, and freezes well. If you prefer a store-bought sauce, these sauces contain 80 mg sodium or less per serving. Watch the web story here.
