Salt isn’t the only flavoring to avoid. Condiments can add to your intake, too. One tablespoon of ketchup contains 167 mg of salt, and just one measly tablespoon of commercial Italian salad dressing contains 243 mg.
While these numbers may seem low, remember, few people use only one tablespoon of catsup on a burger, let alone one tablespoon of dressing on a salad. When you’re watching your sodium intake, every drop of dressing makes a difference.
