The role of sodium in food processing.


Recommendations for dietary sodium reduction can be communicated effectively when the role of sodium in food processes is understood, Knowledge of why sodium is present in foods helps the dietitian to predict likely and unlike sodium sources. When this information is used in counseling, dietary modifications may become less complex because they are based on knowledge and understanding, not on the memory of long lists of individual foods. Examining the role of sodium in food production practices can assist the knowledge-understanding-counseling effort.
