    SALT in shrimp!! - 4/25/2007 1:57:47 PM

    Anybody know how to eat shrimp without the added salt? Just discovered today that ALL frozen shrimp (and chicken breasts) have added salt for preservative. And if you find fresh shrimp, it's almost always been previously frozen!!
    My weight loss has stalled, and I think it's linked to the extra shrimp I've added - which is listed as a Protein B and allowed on plan!
    Help please! Thanks!

    Hi..
    I have always the frozen shrimp from walmart or Cosco..and they don't have any salt in it...and they are very good..
    I don't know if rinsing your shrimp will get rid of the salt..maybe a BMOS could help you out with that..

    Good Luck

    All of the frozen shrimp that I found at wal-mart has added salt too. I did find some that wasn't frozen, it was in the case next to the frozen kind, with the fresh fish and it didn't have added salt, but was alittle more expensive.

    As far as the Chicken goes, you really have to watch it, not just in the frozen but in the fresh as well. Some say they have found some frozen that hasn't been injected, but I live in a smaller city, haven't found any here. So I started buying the fresh, the first kind I got was tyson, it had much less then the frozen, at 180mg per 4oz., then I found some Foster Farms and Sanderson Farms, it only has 75mg per 4 oz. That is the only kind I buy now. I shop at Safeway, they also sell a brand in bulk called Butchers Block or somehting like that, I looked at that because is always less expensive and it had 500mg per 4oz serving, which was higher then the frozen that I had seen. The moral of the story is that you always have to check.....if the sodium content seems high, then look at the ingredients and chances are your gonna find salt or broth that contains salt.

    I've got the chicken thing down now. I am now working more on the different things like the fish and shirmp because I have no idea how much sodium it should have to begin with, I've bought shrip once and have never bought fish, so if I'm unsure I just won't buy it.

    Thanks! We checked Walmart this afternoon too - found lotsa salt in their shrimp too. We're also in a small town with minimal access to the big stores, but appreciate the help.

    I usually buy frozen shrimp at Meijer's. I just looked at the bag this weekend and noticed that a serving had over 500 mg of sodium!!!! I don't think there was added salt either, although when I'm home I'll check. I thought it was just naturally high in sodium!

    No, if there is 500 mg of sodium, there would HAVE to be some added.

    I found that if you buy the raw shrimp rather than the pre-cooked shrimp you won't find so much added salt. Although mine says it has added Sodium Tri - somthingorother. I'm sure its not good, but this was the best I could find. The shrimp that's already cooked, it says plain as day, added salt.

    I checked the bag last night. Added salt. That is a bummer. That would have made a convenient snack. I can't eat it much anyway because of the cholesterol. But what about in a restaurant? If you order shrimp cocktail, they probably use the frozen shrimp too?

    Hi Norma,

    You are probably right about the restaurant using frozen sodium loaded shrimp as well as the cocktail sauce having sodium & sugar. I just looked at the package I bought at Walmart & was very upset. I had measured out & baggie'd my portions, too! So I guess I'll have to toss it out. Can't believe the added salt in the chicken! Wow I didn't even think to look it the label there!!

    I came to post a similar thread, but figured I would just bump this one.

    Did a BMOS ever give any answer to this? I was SHOCKED at how much added salt was in the shrimp I have been eating religiously, and it seems there is NO WAY to avoid it, so why is Shrimp even listed for this plan?

    I went to the meat guy at the grocery store, and grabbed a bag of frozen shrimp which is the same kind they put out defrosted and sell as "fresh", and it had an INSANE amount of sodium.

    Help?

    Dolores did answer above.  Was there some other question which was overlooked?  Smile

    Frozen shrimp is a difficult issue.  I've gone through numerous packages in numerous stores and about the only think I've occasionally turned up was frozen pink shrimp (which I found at Whole Foods and another small local market.)  For some reason, neither package of this particular variety of shrimp seemed to have added salt, but I can't promise that's a universal.  Apparently it's a common practice to add salt in an attempt to retard water loss as a part of the preservation process of the product and while there are no salt added products out there, they're not easy to find.

     

    Effective February 2013, I'll be moving on to other Provida adventures and will no longer be part of the 6WBM staff.   I've enjoyed working with you all and wish you the best with your weight loss endeavors.

    I've been able to find raw frozen shrimp with no salt added yet the pink pre-cooked frozen shrimp I've seen all seems to have salt added.

    I can usually find at least one type of frozen shrimp without salt at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods.
