The purpose of this study was to analyze the nutrition labeling of Guk, Tang, Jjigae HMR products to provide consumers with appropriate information when selecting products, and to provide basic data on the national policies. In this study, nutritional labels of 176 products were analyzed with 57 Guk, 75 Tang, 44 Jjigae. In the menu frequency of products, Guk has the products of the specific purposes, Tang has animal protein product, Jjigae has popular products. As a result of comparing the portion size and 9 major nutrients of the product, the average sodium content of Guk was 1558.5 mg, Tang was 1472.3mg, Jjigae was 2118.0mg. By the storage temperature, the average sodium content of HMR product was 2022.9mg in freezing(below $-18^{\circ}C$), 1676.7mg in cold($-2{\sim}10^{\circ}C$), and 1250.9mg in room temperature($1{\sim}35^{\circ}C$). Therefore, it is necessary to focus on the sodium content of Frozen products in the attempt of reducing sodium in HMR products.
