(D) a reduced reliance on the significant amounts of hidden sodium often contained in processed foods

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"
