How much sodium is in that vegetarian protein?

If you’re vegetarian, or just enjoy mixing your diet up with vegetarian foods, there are still many ways you can make good protein choices. But how much sodium do they contain?

The sodium content of vegetarian protein varies a lot. Protein foods such as unflavoured tofu, tempeh, TVP (textured vegetable protein) and Quorn are very low sodium choices. It’s the flavoured and more processed foods where you’ll find the sodium is higher.

When you choose vegetarian protein, think about what you will be serving it with. Other meal ingredients, such as sauces or soy-cheese, may increase the sodium considerably. It pays to take time to read the labels carefully.

Serving sizes vary, so we’ve compared the sodium content per 100g (about 1 serve) to the recommended adult upper daily limit for sodium (2300mg).
