3.    Pickles
Sodium is added to pickles in dangerous amounts while they are being processed. This makes pickles an undesirable choice of food for those suffering from high blood pressure.

4.    Sauces 
Large amounts of sugars and salts in condiments, sauces and other additives makes them a bad choice for those suffering from high blood pressure and for those trying to avoid it.

5.    Pastries
