salt/sodium question

Spencer | Jun 13, 2007 11:38 AM

Can someone answer this question for me?
Here is the background:
I have a LONG history of eating more salt than any 10 people I know put together. Due to blood pressure issues, I have gone on a nearly 0 salt diet. I'm in week 4. I'm used to it now and am surprisingly okay with it.
Obviously, I have had to change my cooking habits. Something I have noticed is that recipes that have lemon or lime zest as an ingredient now taste saly to me. I am wondering why this is. Does zest contain sodium, or is there some other taste dynamic going on here?
Thanks,
Spencer
