Health and diet

Small changes to your diet can make a big difference to your health

Current UK government guidelines recommend that adults should consume no more than 6g of salt per day. How does your diet fare and how can LoSalt help?

Remember that around 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 NHS website

Cooking from scratch allows you to monitor how much salt you are adding.

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 maintain a healthy blood pressure.

A little extra potassium in your diet

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 pressure.

Foods that contain potassium include fruit and vegetables (including dried ones), potatoes, pulses, nuts and seeds, milk and yoghurt, 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.


Staying healthy

Follow the best diet advice by eating more fruit and vegetables and avoiding processed foods with high sodium levels.
