"Salt is not the only source of sodium you should be concerned about. The NIH, American Medical Association (AMA) and American Dietetic Association (ADA) now strongly urge daily consumption of dietary sodum at between 1,300 and 1,800 milligrams. That means all forms of sodium. Unfortunately, there are a great number of hidden sources of sodium in packaged, canned, frozen and prepared foods as well as in dairy products. And now we have to look out for fresh poultry that is brined, fresh pork that is brined and turkeys with additives, and salt brining as part of their everyday processing. (NOTE: Your vitamins and other supplements may also have sodium. A Centrum Senior or comparable vitamin contains nearly 61 mg of sodium. In our low sodium lifestyle, that can be more than 10% of a desirable daily intake.) Various supplements like chondroitin/glucosomine can have as much as 2,000 mg of sodium. Following are the most prevalent sources of sodium."

I have intolerances to many of the new additives they're using today like: sea salt, carrageenan, high fructose corn syrup and Xanthun gum. It's different than my reactions to shellfish. Read the article and you will see how bad these additives are for everyone--not just for people with allergies.

Allergic to shellfish, penicillin, blackflies, fire ants, harsh chemicals in shampoos; hot foods; molds; did I say fire ants...hehe

Once you are aware of the recommended daily allowance for sodium you will be shocked at how much is in many processed foods- especially frozen foods. Thanks for the article link.
