Use less salt at the table
If you are used to adding a sprinkling of salt to your potatoes
or vegetables on the plate, LoSalt is ideal. You still get the
flavor but with two thirds less sodium.
Watch out for hidden salt
On average, 75% of our daily salt intake is hidden in processed
foods. Everything from bread to a can of soup, a packet of cereal
to a packaged meal, will contain added salt. Look out for reduced
sodium products to help improve your diet, or switch from
ready-made to homemade, for a healthier - and often
less expensive - approach to cooking and eating.
Cook it yourself
If you cook your food from scratch, using fresh ingredients, you
will use less salt than readymade equivalents. If you add salt
during cooking, use LoSalt rather than regular salt to further
reduce your sodium intake.
Try other flavorings
Experiment with herbs and spices to add flavor to food. Find
some great ideas in our recipe section.
Understand the package information
In the US, some packages quote salt content, while others quote
sodium content. The recommended daily allowance for an adult for
salt is 5g per day. The recommended daily intake of sodium is just
2g. Make sure you know what's being quoted and can understand the
Taste before you season
Lots of people sprinkle on the salt before they've even tasted
their food, just out of habit. Learn to taste your food first and
you could be surprised how often it passes the taste test, without
any added salt.
