CDC Finds That Bread And Rolls Are The Major Source Of Sodium In The American Diet

February 7, 2012: 07:10 PM EST
A Center for Disease Control report on dietary sodium says bread and rolls – not salty snacks – are the number one source of salt in the U.S. diet. CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden said snack foods like potato chips, pretzels and popcorn rank only at No. 10 on CDC’s list of top sodium sources. The CDC was careful to clarify that bread and rolls aren’t themselves loaded with salt: but people tend to eat a lot more of them. The top 10 list accounts for 44 percent of the sodium in the American diet. Bread and rolls provide about seven percent of the salt, followed by cold cuts and cured meats, pizza, fresh and processed poultry, soups, fast-food hamburgers and sandwiches, and cheese.
