Sodium in Sodas

A medical doctor/reporter on cable news states that soft drinks (sodas) are high in sodium.


Most sodas (including diet sodas) contain between 30 and 50 mg sodium per 12 oz can – about the same as in most fruit juice beverages. A cup (8 oz) of milk contains 160 mg sodium. FDA defines “low in sodium” for a beverage as no more than 140 mg sodium. Clearly, soda is very low in sodium. Of course, that does not make it “healthy.”
