    • Description:
      All across the United States, high sodium intake is a major problem. On average, American adults eat more than 3,300 milligrams (mg) of sodium a day, more than double the recommended limit for most adults. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010 recommend that Americans aged 2 and up reduce sodium intake to less than 2,300 mg per day. People 51 and older and those of any age who are African Americans or who have high blood pres- sure, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease—about half the U.S. population and the majority of adults—should further reduce sodium intake to 1,500 mg per day.

      The vast majority of U.S. adults eat more sodium than they need. Having accurate information about where dietary salt comes from can help Americans stick to the recommendations.
