One of the perils of preservation is the addition of sodium to foods.. I understand how pork must be brined before smoking etc. but Shrimp?
USDA reports that 3 ounces of regular cooked shrimp contains 805 mg of sodium!
According to Cooking Light online, Shrimp run from 97 to 730mg of sodium per 4 oz when tested. Fresh, never frozen was the best with the easy to peel varieties coming in on the high end.
You bet they do. At least if the bird is frozen! Check out the difference between the Fresh and Frozen turkeys. Fresh will range from 70-90mg per 4 ounce portion BUT! if the bird is frozen look forward to 400+mg.
Most cottage cheese is loaded with sodium. Friendship dairies has a no added salt version which has only 120 mg per cup. a great reduction from the usual 819 per cup.
