Good question. Other nutrients can be added to the nutrition tracker including sodium. Then when you look at the full report each day you can see which foods the sodium (and other nutrients) comes from. It helps me plan a better balanced diet and cut down on the foods high in things I don't want.
In the great shipyard of life it helps to be a little dinghy.
Eggs also have sodium content. 1 large egg has 71 mg sodium.
I did a little research and found a few surprising foods (which will not have nutritional labels) that have hidden sodium:
Shrimp: 190 mg in 3 oz. serving (cooked)...before the sauce!
Crab: 911 mg in 3 oz. Alaskan King Crab...whoa, seems very high, but this is what SparkPeople says
Celery: 56 mg in one large celery stalk...I would not have guessed that celery had any sodium (you could eat a 1-ounce bowl of potato chips for less sodium than two stalks of celery!)

When foods have labels, I can identify sodium sources easily, but what foods that don't carry labels (fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, etc.) might contribute sodium?
