The current sodium recommendation is 2,300mg per day. However, most of us can take in as much as 3,400mg per day. I have been told to monitor my sodium intake and if you have diabetes or not, you should be extra careful with the amount of sodium you consume. So here is what I do to control my sodium in a lot of my recipes, I use MRS Dash and I make a part of my pantry items. For delicious low-sodium recipes.
