For people at risk of developing high blood pressure, it’s especially important to monitor the intake of these 26 common foods.
Bacon is a preserved pork product (usually taken from the pig’s fatty belly), that’s either cured in a brine or dry-packed with salt and spices, and then smoked. Bacon is versatile and delicious, but it should be used as a flavoring agent because of its high sodium content. One ounce of bacon contains around 400 milligrams of sodium, a little less than 20 percent of your recommended daily allowance. Pair it with eggs, home fries, and toast, and you’re looking at a super salty breakfast.
