I think these are a new product, kind of expensive but if you can find them on sale they are delicious. Plus many are conveniently labeled vegan so you don't have to read the label. I am currently enjoying the soy ginger and perhaps tommorow I will enjoy the sesame teriyaki. Great for lunch at work.

Also, don't look too closely at the sodium content. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/worried.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":worried:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">

Though it may be inconvenient, I would still read the label <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:">

I like them for a quick thing to grab when i'm running late for a filling and tasty lunch. It does have alot of sodium(imo) but i think it's better than if i was bringing some ramen. Lol!

I looked at them again yesterday, and I was wrong. The Simply Asia meals are quite high in sodium, but it's the Ka-Me brand that's the real shocker I was thinking of. 1750 mg (73% RDA) in one serving! *faints*

I'll have to look at the ones i bought. I thought they had around 800mg. I wish i knew how much this was compared to how many teaspoons though.

When reading the labels, also be careful to notice what they claim is one serving. Some of the say that one package is two servings. Yeah, right, who splits one of these with a friend or saves half for later?<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block"><b>Sodium Recommended Daily Allowance</b> (RDA)<br><br>
The current recommendation is to consume less than 2,400 milligrams (mg) of sodium a day. This is about 1 teaspoon of table salt per day. It includes ALL salt and sodium consumed, including sodium used in cooking and at the table.<br><br><br><br><b>UK Sodium RDA</b><br><br>
The US sodium RDA of less than 2,400 mg is higher than the UK Recommended Nutritional Intake (RNI) whose upper limit for sodium is 1,600 mg.<br><br><br><br><b>Sodium RDA - Lower for Those with Blood Pressure</b><br><br>
People with high blood pressure should consume less sodium as recent research has shown that people consuming diets of 1,500 mg of sodium had better blood pressure lowering benefits. These lower-sodium diets also can keep blood pressure from rising and help blood pressure medicines work better.<br><br><br><br><b>Sodium RDA - National Research Council</b><br><br>
The National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences recommends an approximate daily range of 1,100 to 3,300 mg of sodium for adults.</div>
