Sodium Content Lists

When you are monitoring how much sodium you're getting, it is essential to know the sodium content of ingredients you often use. While general data is widely available, numbers usually differ by product.

Below are lists of ingredients I use and their sodium content by volume. Sodium figures in recipes in this blog are based on these lists. Each link opens up a PDF file.

  • Seasonings (liquids, sauces): Soy sauce, specialty sauce, oyster sauce, fish sauce, shiokoji salted rice malt, etc.
