My Sodium Calculators. You have the use of 2 of your own sodium calculators that can help you find sodium totals, develop your own recipes and stay safe. One calculator let's you add sodium levels an ingredient at a time, then calculates the sodium total for the entire meal and also per serving to know you are hitting your target numbers. Calculator 2 will total your sodium intake for the day. It will not only give you your total, but it you let it know what your Maximum number is, it will let you know how much sodium you have left for that day.
