What types of foods should I avoid to help me stay within the daily recommended sodium intake?

Cured foods such as bacon and ham, foods packed in salty brine such as pickles, olives, and sauerkraut, and condiments such as mustard, ketchup, and barbecue sauce can be significant sources of sodium and should be eaten in small amounts only. Low-salt or low-sodium versions of canned vegetables, soy sauce, broth, and seasoning mixes substitute nicely for the full-salt versions, but read the labels: Some of these are still fairly high in sodium.
