Dieta baja en sodio

Toggle: English / Spanish

Si usted tiene hipertensión arterial o problemas cardíacos, hepáticos o renales, comer demasiada sal puede ser malo. Busque estas palabras en las etiquetas: bajo en sodio, libre de sodio, sin sal agregada, con poco sodio o sin sal. Verifique todas las etiquetas para ver cuánta sal o alimentos con sodio hay por porción. Igualmente, evite alimentos que ubiquen la sal encabezando la lista de ingredientes. Un producto con menos de 100 mg de sal por porción es bueno.
