Sodium Levels Vary Widely in Bread

Many Americans do not realize that bread is the top source of sodium in the American diet. This latest edition of the Center for Science in the Public Interest’s “Salt Assault” found widely varying amounts of sodium among brands of 100% whole wheat and white breads. For instance, Whole Foods’ Organic 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread has an astounding two-and-a-half times as much sodium per 100 grams as Target’s Simply Balanced 100% Organic Whole Wheat Bread. In fact, when it comes to sodium, eating one slice of the Whole Foods’ bread is like eating 22 potato chips.
