No added salt doesn’t mean no sodium.
Fresh meat and seafood that have not undergone any processing nor any addition of salt, are still a source of sodium in our diet. Sodium occurs naturally in these meats and seafood, even though the level of naturally occurring sodium is low, but most times, these meats and seafood would have been marinated or seasoned with salt or salt laden sauces before cooking. In summary, one’s total sodium intake comes not only from salt that has been added during cooking, but also from the naturally occurring sodium, which adds up as well.
