When available, buy low-sodium, lower- sodium, reduced-sodium, or no-salt-added versions of products. Limit sauces, mixes, and "instant" products, including flavored rice and ready-made pasta. Compare Nutrition Facts labels on food packages for percent Daily Value or amount of sodium in milligrams.
