Simply - does one reduce the sodium content in canned soup if one adds a lot of water?
I’m trying to have my dad eat less salt due to his high blood pressure but he loves canned soup - and he eats the whole can.
His claim: The fix is to just add a bunch of water - that will dilute the soup and therefore dilute the sodium - thereby reducing any harmful effects.
Me- the addition of water may indeed dilute the TASTE of the soup, but if the label says 800mg in a full can and you’re eating the whole can, you just ate 800mg of sodium - diluted or not.
If he used the water to stretch the number of servings and not the eat whole can, then I can see his point.
Am I missing something?
