An increasing number of people are eating processed and "fast food" for convenience and cost, while unaware of its frequently high sodium content. This is leading to high rates of high blood pressure and other health issues. To help people take control of how much sodium they consume, the Canadian Stroke Network has developed the Sodium101 iPhone app, based on their popular website (www.sodium101.ca.) to make it easier for consumers to make smarter, lower-sodium food choices.
• Track your sodium intake based on your age group.
• Compare and track sodium content in takeout food.
• Enter and track sodium in packaged foods.
• A comprehensive listing of over 2000 food items from Canada's most popular takeout chains.
• Build a list of your favourite food items for quick and easy tracking.
• A handy converter that allows you to calculate the amount of sodium in any amount of salt.
• Simulated salt shaker to count salt added to food.
• Recipe converter that allows you to track the salt added to food while cooking, and calculates the sodium content based on serving size.
• Track your daily progress at a glance with the handy sodium thermometer.
• Start fresh each day by clearing your daily sodium diary.
• Share your daily sodium totals on Facebook and Twitter.

What's New in Version 1.3
Corrects a problem that prevented some people from using the reset feature, and other minor bug fixes.
This is a nice little app. Here is what I like:
- set-up of the favorites
- ability to split servings
- ability to edit foods already on your daily list to easily increase quantity
- the gauge giving the total consumption
- color representation of where the salt came from (pie chart)
The following would make it awesome:
- selecting age range should have to be done only once (on my ipod every time the the app is opened one has to go through "Start" and choose the age range).
- automatic alphabetic ordering of favorites will make it easier to find items once the list gets longer
- not having to loose your previous day's data when having to reset your list the next day to start over (would be great to have the list of consumed foods in a history)
- charts that let you track the daily salt consumption (week/month presentation)
I tried to do a half quantity and it went to the place and I couldn't exit. I had to delete the app and start again. Must be a glitch otherwise it seems good
