Information on the relative contributions of all dietary sodium (Na) sources is needed to assess the potential efficacy of manipulating the component parts in efforts to implement current recommendations to reduce Na intake in the population. The present study quantified the contributions of inherently food-borne, processing-added, table, cooking, and water sources in 62 adults who were regular users of discretionary salt to allow such an assessment. Seven-day dietary records, potable water…

Sodium food sources in the Canadian diet.
The purpose of this study is to provide information on the current sources of dietary sodium in the Canadian food supply to provide a baseline to measure against the effectiveness of strategies to reduce salt consumption, and key food group contributors of sodium are breads, processed meats, and pasta dishes.
A Systematic Review of the Sources of Dietary Salt Around the World.
A systematic review of studies conducted in 34 countries between 1975 and 2018 found that bread products, cereal and grains, meat products, and dairy products were the major contributors to dietary salt intake in most populations.
Food Sources of Sodium Intake in an Adult Mexican Population: A Sub-Analysis of the SALMEX Study
The main objective of this study was to identify and characterize the major food sources of dietary sodium in a sample of the Mexican Salt and Mexico cohort.
Contribution of Major Groups of Food Products to the Daily Intake of Selected Elements—Results from Analytical Determinations Supported by Chemometric Analysis
Dietary intake of trace elements was within the range of reference values in the subjects, with cereals being the major source of a majority of those elements, while meat, vegetables, and milk products were the main contributors to the daily dietary intake of macroelements.
Canadians continue to consume too much sodium and not enough potassium.
OBJECTIVES Excessive sodium (Na) intakes and insufficient potassium (K) intakes are known contributors to hypertension. In July 2010, the Health Canada-led multi-stakeholder Sodium Working Group
Sources of Sodium in US Adults From 3 Geographic Regions
Sodium added to food outside the home accounted for 70% of dietary sodium intake, consistent with the 2010 Institute of Medicine recommendation for reduction of sodium in commercially processed foods as the primary strategy to reduce sodium intake in the United States.
Dietary sodium reduction: is there cause for concern?
Overall, extensive data supporting the safety of public health recommendations for moderate Na reduction and none suggesting cause for concern is identified.


An assessment of the sources of dietary salt in a British population.
An epidemiological study was conducted in the market town of March, Cambridgeshire, to assess the quantitative importance of cooking and table salt to total dietary salt intake by the use of a fused
Sources of sodium in the Finnish diet
Bread, buns and pastries arc the most important sources of sodium, constituting 2 2 % of the total sodium intake, and that of sausages and other meat products is 14%.
A method to assess sodium intake in populations.
Evaluation of methods used to assess dietary intake: simulation analyses.
Simulation modelling of the effect of using different dietary methods and using urinary excretion as a proxy for intake concluded that with appropriate choice of methodology and study design, even low order relationships between sodium intake and blood pressure should be detectable.
Food choices for lowering sodium intake.
Anyone who needs to reduce sodium intake must, therefore, make major changes in diet, which requires information on the sodium content of common foods, the availability of low Sodium analogs of popular foods, and a variety of low sodium condiments to provide more choice for the individual.

Food consumption data collected in nutrition surveys could be used for estimating sodium intake and sources of sodium in the diet of population groups whenever accurate data on the salt content of local foods are available.
Nutrient sources in the American diet: quantitative data from the NHANES II survey. II. Macronutrients and fats.
Dietary data from 11,658 adult respondents in the second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey were used to provide quantitative information regarding the contribution of specific foods to
Sodium and potassium intake measurements: dietary methodology problems.
Total sodium and analyzed potassium were the accurate methods of determining sodium and potassium intake.
Failure to compensate decreased dietary sodium with increased table salt usage.
A substantial reduction in dietary sodium is possible if lowered-sodium foods are consumed in conjunction with ad libitum table salt, and no changes in taste function were found.
