The sodium is high because of the beans, it  has been documented if  you rinse can products very thoroughly 1/3 of the sodium is eliminated.  I love the Tomato Basil because it is extremely low in sodium 15mg per serving.  I try never to add salt anymore to any dish I am making with the da Giulia products.  Garlic powder is a great option. Lots of flavor and trace amount of sodium only.
