The average American consumes about a half-pound of salt everyday. Most of this is in the form of table salt. In this video, I use a food lab to analyze a hamburger and show you how far the salt content is from the American average.
A hamburger has a salt content of 2.5 grams which means that 2.5 g of salt is contained in a single serving. A couple of that, and a whole lot of nothing, doesn’t sound so good? Well, don’t blame it on the high sodium content. The high sodium content contained in a lot of processed meats is a result of the salt being added to a product that is already highly processed.
There’s a lot of sodium in a fast-food deluxe hamburger that lists a salt content of 2.5 g. What exactly are the ingredients in this burger? The answer may surprise you. There are a lot of other sodium that could be causing harm to your health. You may wonder how much salt you need to eat and how much is enough for the daily intake of healthy weight. The answer is, it depends.
A fast-food burger that contains 2.5 grams of sodium? That’s a lot of salt.

Now you never have to worry about the sodium in fast food. The answer is in the ingredients. The ingredients in this hamburger were formulated with a low amount of salt. How can this be? Well, the meat is from a genetically modified animal and contains a low amount of sodium.
This fast-food hamburger has 2.5 grams of salt. According to the FDA, a serving of this hamburger only has 1.1 grams of salt.
Some people are a little worried about the “high sodium content” found in fast food hamburgers and other processed meat products. But don’t worry because the sodium content is extremely low. Most fast food hamburgers have a salt content of 2-2.5 grams. But that is not the only food item that has a high sodium content. You can find high sodium content in other food items such as crackers, cookies, potato chips, and even soda pop.
The average American consumes close to four pounds of salt each year. So, it’s no surprise that fast food is notorious for its high salt content. But how much salt is actually in a fast food deluxe hamburger? This is one of the most difficult questions many people have when it comes to eating out in the fast food industry.
