E.

A and B are not parallel.

C is too wordy "a reduction of the reliance..."

D confuses the sentence. "a reduced reliance on...hidden sodium"

I don't think so.

C says "a reduction of the reliance on processed foods, containing as they do often hidden sodium in significant amounts"

It is parallel but it's also too wordy. "a reduction of the reliance" and "containing as they do often" are both not right.

a reduced reliance is must more concise.
