Health & Nutrition Notes for Bread Stuffing

Commercially prepared stuffing is excessive in sodium content. One cup contains almost 500 milligrams which can play havoc with blood pressure readings and heart health when consumed in excess.

While one cup is generally the recommended serving size, if it is of the commercially prepared variety and is high in salt, slash the serving size.

When preparing at home you have more control over how much salt you add to the recipe.

Strive to keep the amount you add minimal; excess sodium isn't just bad for heart health when consumed in excess - it can also create false pounds on your bathroom scales as it is keen on retaining water in the body.
