Balanced Sodium

GOFoods prescribes to a balanced-sodium approach in formulating their recipes for a healthier diet. Sodium is a required nutrient for the body to function properly, especially in emergency situations. Dietary experts recommend—on average—a maximum daily sodium intake of 2,400 mg for healthy adults and 1,500 mg for middle-aged individuals or those with high blood pressure, kidney disease, or diabetes.

Recipes classified with Balanced Sodium are formulated with less than 20% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA), meaning that based on 1-cup servings, an individual could have one serving three times per day (60%) and still remain well under their 100% RDA. Please note that your RDA is best decided between you and your doctor.
