Think that retiring your salt shaker means reducing the amount of sodium you consume? Guess again. High amounts of salt are hidden in processed foods according to a new report by Consumer Reports.

Researchers analyzed more than 37 different foods and discovered that foods that are thought to not be salty such as bagels, low-fat cottage cheese, raisin bran cereal and even a McDonald’s chicken salad are loaded with sodium—almost more than the recommended daily serving.

“One of the big surprises is that foods that you would think would be really salty, like salted nuts, have less sodium than many processed or packaged foods that don’t taste salty at all,” says Consumer Reports associate health editor Jamie Hirsh.  

Because of a disproportionately high incidence of high blood pressure in the black community, African Americans should get no more than 1,500 milligrams of sodium per day, as opposed to the 2,300 milligrams recommended for other ethnicities.

A high-sodium diet can lead to an increased risk for heart disease, hypertension and stroke. Read more about lowering your sodium intake here.
