HI!

I found this answer researching the same question:

Sodium and Rinsed Canned Beans, Causes of Endometrial Cancer,
Ghee
December 8, 2008
Q: Does rinsing canned beans help reduce their sodium content?
Q: What do we know about the causes of endometrial cancer?

Q: Does rinsing canned beans help reduce their sodium content?
A: Yes. While dried beans are naturally very low in sodium (containing
just 2 to 10 milligrams (mg) in a half-cup of cooked beans) canned
varieties can be loaded with sodium. Some provide as much as 600
mg per half-cup, a quarter of the recommended daily limit. Draining
canned beans in a sieve or colander and rinsing them well can help
reduce the sodium up to 40 percent. To help cut sodium even more,
look for canned beans labeled “No Added Salt.” Luckily, they are
becoming much easier to find.

Below is the link I am referencing. Good Luck!
