Wondering how much sodium you’re consuming each day and whether it’s above recommendations (<2,300 mg/day or 1 teaspoon of table salt for healthy adults and <1,500 mg/day for older adults or people with high blood pressure)?  Researchers at the University of Toronto recently developed a sodium calculator to help users see if they’re meeting the recommendations.  Give it a try to see how your diet stacks up, and visit the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute’s website for great tips on reducing dietary sodium.
