Hi Everybody, Debbie Benson here...
This is where I can tell you about what I know, what I have found-out, and here I can also rant a bit.
Since I was a little girl I have been aware of sodium, both high and low levels, as you learned in my first Season-It Newsletter 3 Tips That Help A Low Sodium Diet. Starting Benson's Gourmet Seasonings has been a dream come true.
As I learn, and find helpful information, tips, products, recipes and websites, I will share the information with you here. Then, you can follow-up and do your own research and make your own, more informed decisions regarding your health, or the health of a loved one. Knowledge helps you and gives you power to make better decisions.
It's not just about what you don't do or can't have. It's also about things you can or should do or add to your diet that can make a difference. Here we go...
Save on your daily sodium intake, just by using unsalted butter instead of salted. You can save quite a bit of additional sodium and it tastes better. You might not think this is a big deal but it adds-up, especially when cooking for holidays or special occasions.Leave a comment...
You will find most brands of salted butter have a different amounts of sodium. Usually the cheaper the brand, the more sodium. You will notice this when reading the amount of sodium per serving. Unsalted butter has 0 mg of sodium per serving where as salted can go from around 30 mg per serving to 90 or 100 mg per serving (usually a tablespoon) sometimes even higher. Salt covers up many off tastes, so unsalted will have the best butter taste. Different brands may have a little different flavor but no sodium.
Did you know that chefs and bakers use unsalted butter?
