30 Bananas a Day!

Hi, carbed up vegans :)

Yesterday, I bought a wheat pasta, and to check if it's vegan (of course), I read the label, it was vegan, but I just got confused because of this: (example of the label)

Ingredients: whole wheat and water,

Nutrition Facts
Carbs: (example)
Calories: (Example)
Fiber: (example)
Salt: 0,02g (or 20mg) [the label was written salt, not sodium,]

So, I know it's such a little amount of sodium (or should I say salt?), because I know both are different things, but I was just in doubt if:

1. the nutrition facts were saying this is the sodium (but confused with salt, because it's usually where the sodium value is);

2. Salt counts as an ingredient or is not demanded to be in the ingredients list, but its amount goes to nutrition facts;

3. If the ingredient list is salt-free, then this is the natural occurring sodium from wheat (I've googled wheat in the same quantity of the label and it appeared "sodium 0,02g or 20mg", the same value, so I believe the sodium was natural occurring from it?), because plants have sodium in them, such as fruit and vegetables.

Can anyone answer these questions, please? I'm eating the pasta normally, just curious in the case I buy something salt is not listed on the ingredients but it's written "salt" on the nutrition facts, instead of sodium... to know if it's a mistake/natural occurring sodium/added (because if it was added, should it be listed as an ingredient?)/etc.

Sorry for so many questions! Thanks, if you can reply :)

I don't know what water means.. i assume it's not distilled water so the salt could come from there.

Though it could also just mean sodium, but in whole wheat to my knowledge there's even way less sodium then that.

Thank you :)
