    Canned Salmon and Sodum Content!

    Ladies, what are your thoughts on canned salmon? I normally eat fresh salmon cut into 3-4 oz portions, but canned would be more affordable. However, I'm reluctant because of the sodium content. How would I determine what is considered "high" sodium amounts? Thanks, T

    There really is nothing wrong with some sodium in your diet... lots of people get 'freaked out' by 'high sodium foods' - but unless you have medical reasons to have a very low sodium diet (eg: kidney condition, heart condition, or sodium sensitive blood pressure), then your body can usually deal with sodium easily enough.

    In regards to bloating - the problem is changes in sodium content NOT a high sodium diet per say... So - if you have lots of salt in your diet, then stick with a high salt diet... If you want to follow a low salt intake, then stick with a low salt intake (and if you do have a meal high in salt know that you'll probably bloat because of it)!

    There was a similar post here -->
    http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...m#post64868323


    So - although I wouldn't go out and LOOK for extra salty food options (or chow down on salt crystals ).... If your diet is generally healthy, then you shouldn't be overly concerned about a little salt in salmon.

    Anyway --> To answer your question though - What is considered a 'high serve' is very individual too. Different people have different requirements based on things like body weight (more = larger requirement), activity/ how much they sweat (sweat it out), how much you drink in terms of fluids (this flushes the sodium out of your body, so you will need more) and a few other things too.

    But, if you had 0.5 cups of that salmon, you would end up with about 540mg sodium.. Which, if you base it on ~ 2400 mg / day = ~ 22.5% of the traditional 'recommended allowance'.


    Lastly - if you still are concerned, you have two options:
    1. look for 'no added salt' options
    2. Rinse the salmon before you use it (open the can, drain the water, put in fresh water, drain again, and repeat a few times - you'll leach out most of the salt).

    It isn't the sodium that scares me. It's the bones, and other misc stuff.

    Hey Emma, thanks for answering my question. I eliminated table salt, and my meals are pretty clean(usually fresh food). Although, occasionally when I have a craving, I'll have a dash of celtic sea salt. It's a lot healthier(taste great), without all the bloating problems of table salt. I'll check out the other thread now.
