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.

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*

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?

Sodium Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA)

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.

UK Sodium RDA

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.

Sodium RDA - Lower for Those with Blood Pressure

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.

Sodium RDA - National Research Council

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.
