How much sodium is in that fresh pasta?

It’s important to keep an eye on sodium intake, as many New Zealanders consume a lot more than is recommended. Most comes from processed foods, fresh pasta included.

The World Health Organization recommends consuming less sodium to lower blood pressure and the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.

We have compared the sodium content per serve of fresh pasta to the recommended upper daily limit for adults of 2300mg.

NOTE: Serve sizes vary. Using the uncooked weight, plain fresh pasta is 100g per serve and filled pastas are 150-160g per serve, depending on the brand.

Tips

  • You may not need to add salt to the water when cooking pasta, as it may contain enough.
  • Take care with pasta sauce and cheese as these also add sodium.
