Salt Alternatives...Salternatives?

perrywillis | Jun 26, 2010 02:51 PM

Hello fellow chowsters,

I searched the forums for salt alternatives and sodium and did not see a thread on salt alternatives. With recent news/health trends focusing on salt/sodium consumption I'm looking for something to season my foods that has less sodium. I know most of people's sodium consumption comes from processed foods and restaurant dishes, but I want to find something to season my home meals with that might be healthier for me.

I love radishes or celery dashed with salt. Perfect snack for me, not for my blood pressure.
Tried Mrs. Dash and promptly plunked it into the trash.

If anyone has any tips or suggestions, I'm all ears.

BTW: I went to Boar's Head web site. Their "low sodium" products are a lot higher in sodium than most of their beef products. Granted the beef has more calories and sat. fat, but it is interesting they don't market their beef products as low sodium.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
