I have a chemistry question for you. On food labels it says how many mgs for sodium. Is that for just sodium or is it salt? A typical label may read 300 mg sodium. Does that really mean maybe 600 mg salt. Doesn't sodium weigh less than the chlorine part? (If I remember my chemistry right) A sub sandwich label may read 1000 mg sodium. Does that mean it has near 2000 mg salt? I have read some recommendations to keep salt below 1 teaspoon or about 2000 mg. Is that 2000 mgs of salt or sodium?
