February is National Canned Food Month and so this month, Fareway Food Stores is showing us how to choose cans that are healthy, affordable, and easy to use!

Low sodium = Less than 140 mg per serving

No Salt Added = No salt added in the manufacturing process, but does not mean sodium-free

Reduced Sodium = Sodium is reduced by 25% from original produce

Lightly Salted = Sodium is reduced by 50%
