The sodium content is in the water, but also in the vegetable. You can drain and rinse them before you eat and that will cut it down a little, but there is still going to be sodium in what you eat. Surely it's better than some other options, though- so if you enjoy it, go for it- or look into the low sodium cans.

Draining and rinsing under tap water, can remove up to about 40% of the sodium

How much of the sodium do you throw away when you drain a can of vegatables? At work, I keep can veggies around to snack on. Lots better than a candy bar. A lady at work says - you should never eat can veggies because they have too much sodium. I'm thinking that I probably drain at least half of the sodium with the juice, but I'm not sure.
