The Truth About Sodium

Let's compare sausage brands

Did you know that all our food contains natural sodium, even single ingredient veggies? For instance, a single beet contains 65 mg of sodium, 1 large celery stick contains 50 mg of sodium and 1 single serving of chicken breast contains 70 mg of sodium.


 Sodium is a mineral that is important for maintaining a normal fluid balance in your body. It is found naturally in foods and also added to certain foods such as sausage. The daily recommended intake of sodium is 2300 mg per day. If you take in too much sodium, it could lead to heart problems, high blood pressure, etc. That is why it is very important to eat a healthy diet and read nutritional labels. Take a look at nutritional labels at your supermarket on your next grocery trip, if you don’t do so already. Determine what the total amount of sodium is in the product. Nutritional labels are required on foods so that consumers like yourself can make healthy choices. 


At Meadow Creek, we are always trendsetters. We first started with a gluten free facility and then we added no added hormones or antibiotics to the mix. In general, the amount of sodium used in the sausage business is out of this world. So here we go again at Meadow Creek Sausage…we have lowered the amount of sodium as much as possible while still maintaining a flavourful sausage. 


To help you make healthier choices when it comes to sausage, we have pulled together nutritional information from various sausage makers in the industry, all of which is readily available on their websites. To make it easier for you, we have adjusted our own nutritional information to match the serving size of the various other brand names. This way you can compare apples to apples easily. The difference in sodium content alone is immense!
