How salty are popular takeout foods?
Fast-food chains post data on their websites: Hardee's Monster Thick-burger contains almost 3,000mg sodium. But most small, local restaurants don't post nutrition information.
We got takeout from three in our town to see how entrées stacked up. They stacked up really, really high.
Trattoria pizza topped with cured meats, sausage, and olives: 3,474mg sodium
Barbecue pulled-pork sandwich with baked beans and slaw: 2,480mg sodium
Bowl of ramen with miso broth: 3,245mg sodium
