The University of Maine provides an online list of sodium content in common foods. It is a comprehensive chart that includes the sodium information for a variety of beverages, dairy products, eggs, oils, vegetables, fruits, juices, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, meat, soups, sauces, desserts, fast food items and more.
Fresh fruits, vegetables and meat tend to be naturally low in sodium, while processed foods are usually high in sodium. Those who are seeking to reduce their sodium intake should consume more fresh produce and use salt sparingly when cooking at home. They should also check product labels for low sodium options and choose plainer foods when they eat out.
