“Reduced-Sodium”

Translation: Otherwise written as “low in sodium”, “less sodium”, “low sodium” or “light in sodium”, this statement means that the product contains less sodium than the original product. However, depending on how it’s stated, it can mean different things: “low in sodium” or “less sodium” means that the product contains at least 25% less sodium than the original; “light in sodium” means that the product contains 50% less than the original”, and “low sodium” means that the product contains 140 mg or less of sodium per serving.

In general, you should consider any food with 20% or more of your daily value (DV) for sodium a high-sodium food.
