Health and diet
Small changes to your diet can make a big difference to your
Current World Health Organization guidelines recommend that
adults should consume no more than 5g of salt per day. How much
salt is in your diet and how can LoSalt help?
Remember that about 75% of the salt we consume is hidden in
everyday food products such as bread, cheese, biscuits and cereal.
Check the labels to compare brands and find the products with lower
salt content. Find more detail about products with high salt
content on the AHA website.
Cooking from scratch allows you to monitor how much salt you are
If you add salt when you cook or you sprinkle salt on food at
the table, LoSalt is an excellent way to cut your intake from this
source by two thirds.
A low sodium diet could really help make a difference and

As LoSalt is a blend of sodium chloride and potassium chloride,
using LoSalt as part of your diet will increase the potassium in
your diet, which can also help maintain a healthy blood
Foods that contain potassium include fruit and vegetables
(including dried ones), potatoes, dried beans, nuts and seeds, milk
and yogurt, fish, poultry and wholegrain cereals. You can stock up
on these foods and keep your blood pressure at a healthy level.
However, check with your doctor before increasing the potassium
in your diet. Some people - for example, those with kidney disease
- may need to avoid both potassium and salt.
