Just how much salt are you eating?

According to the FDA recommends The FDA recommends no more than 2,300 mg of sodium a day and says that over 75% of your sodium intake comes from from eating packaged and restaurant foods.

But what, exactly, is 2,300 mg of sodium? We know it’s lurking in our lunches but where?

Healthline measured out half your daily intake of sodium and gives a visual using prepackaged food.

You may be surprised to learn a just over 2oz of smoked salmon actually has the same amount of sodium than three slices of lasagna!
