Washington: The American Heart Association has revealed six common foods that are major sources of salt in our diets, including bread, cured meats, Pizza and Sandwiches. Surprisingly the “salty six” doesn’t include snack foods like chips, the association said. “Excess sodium in our diets has less to do with what we’re adding to our food and more to do with what’s already in the food,” CBS News quoted Dr. Linda Van Horn, a research nutritionist at North-western University who volunteers at the AHA, as saying in a statement.“The average individual is getting more than double the amount of sodium that they need, but there are ways to improve their sodium intake under their control,” she said.US dietary guidelines advises people to take no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium each day, while AHA urges an even lower amount, 1,500 milligrams.However, a recent survey from the association found that most Americans average about 3,400 milligrams each day, mostly from processed and restaurant foods.
