If a food already has salt in it, it is nearly impossible to rid the food of this salt. Controlling salt, or getting rid of salt in food, requires limiting added intake of salt to said food. Also, buying foods that are low in salt is a great way to reduce total salt intake. For example, many canned vegetables now have reduced salt products that reduce the salt content by not adding salt as a preservative. Salt content is noted on the label for all foods, so monitor the label and salt intake can be controlled.
