Bryonia, the health food stores have low sodium baking powder. Baking soda is a LOT higher, it has 160 mg in 1/8 tsp, so if you use a tsp, that's 160x8=1280mg. Now if that's all the sodium you use in a recipe, and the recipe serves 10, that's not bad, so watch your serving size. Canned foods and processed foods are often high, you're much better off cooking from scratch and cutting the salt in half or less. If you eat a lot of bread, that could be a problem. I love hearty breads, and not only do they have a lot of sodium, they're also expensive, so I bake my own and use less than half the sodium in the recipe.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil. 4:13

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."

Hi, I joined a while back but wandered off track for quite a while. A little over a week ago I decided to get serious about getting healthy and came back to SparkPeople. I hadn't paid much attention to my sodium intake in the past, but the daily nutrition feedback made me realize that I was unaware of how much hidden sodium I was getting in my diet. Today I made what I thought was a very healthy batch of whole wheat pancakes. And they were healthy in all the categories except sodium. When I saw my daily sodium intake, I was floored. I had no idea there was so much sodium in baking powder! I realized this is an area that I need to pay attention to and learn more about.
