Sandwich breads are salted to maintain freshness. The sodium and carbs in processed foods may explain why you feel "puffed" after eating them.

There are 101 milligrams of salt in a tablespoon of normal butter. If you use a lot of it in a recipe, that percentage might quickly increase.

There is a lot of salt in canned soups because it preserves the food. Look at the labels to make sure the products you buy are low in salt.
