You’d never shake salt on a salad. Yet a kale chicken Caesar salad from Chop’t has 1,490 mg sodium: about 65% of the recommended limit. Order at Applebee’s, and your pecan crusted chicken salad, at 2,390 mg, will wipe out your whole day’s salt allotment.
There’s a sodium bomb in your milkshake!
Salt has never looked so scary: a little white shaker surrounded by a forbidding black triangle. That’s the symbol diners will start seeing on the menus of chain restaurants in New York City, which are now required to label items with the symbol when they exceed 2,300 mg of sodium. That’s the current recommended limit for an entire day of the white stuff. Sound extreme? Sodium bombs are hidden in corners of the menu you’d never expect.
