301. Following the nutrition board’s advice on salt consumption would mean a virtual end of the use of salt in cooking, an avoidance of obviously salty foods, and reducing the reliance on processed foods that contain significant amounts of often hidden sodium.

(A) reducing the reliance on processed foods that contain significant amounts of often hidden sodium
(B) reducing the reliance on processed foods containing often hidden but significant amounts of sodium
(C) a reduction of the reliance on processed foods, containing as they do often hidden sodium in significant amounts
(D) a reduced reliance on the significant amounts of hidden sodium often contained in processed foods
(E) a reduced reliance on processed foods that contain significant but often hidden amounts of sodium

I choose E for being parallel (therefore eliminate A and B) and most concise. C and D are wordy and a bit awkward.

I will go with E.

We can eliminate A and B because "reducing the reliance" is not paralles with the rest.

C - awkward
D - reduced reliance on foods and not on hideen amounts of sodium
E - follows the paralleism and clearly says "significant but often hidden amounts"
