sodium & beans

if i purchase canned beans and rinse before eating, do they still have the same amount of sodium as listed on the can? i have no idea how to do the "soak" method

My doctor told me that by rinsing canned goods thoroughly under water before eating that you can remove up to 40% of the sodium. Also-as far as beans go, you can also buy dried beans and rehydrate them overnight (this is the soak method you are referring to) or most have directions on the package on how to cook them for an hour or so to soften them. Also some companies make "low sodium" versions of their canned beans. I know Goya has a couple that I buy on occasion.
