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 the 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...

Remember when I told you that often the lower the fat, the higher the sodium?  
Here is are some examples per serving:
  • Whole milk, 1 cup 98 mg sodium
  • 2% milk, 1 cup 100 mg sodium
  • 1% milk, 1 cup 107 mg sodium
  • Nonfat milk, 1 cup 145 mg sodium
  • Half n Half, 1 Tablespoon, 6 mg sodium
  • Half & Half Fat Free, 1 Tablespoon 22 mg sodium
  • Heavy whipping cream, 1 Tablespoon 6 mg sodium
  • Sour cream regular, 2 Tablespoons 16 mg sodium
  • Sour cream reduced fat, 2 Tablespoons 22 mg sodium
  • Sour cream fat free, 2 Tablespoons 42 mg sodium
  • Cream cheese regular, 1 oz 100 mg sodum
  • Cream cheese light, 1 oz 200 mg sodium
  • Mascarpone, 1 oz 16 mg sodium 
  • Yogurt regular, plain 8 oz 104 sodium
  • Yogurt lowfat, plain 8 oz 159 mg sodium
  • Yogurt fat free, plain 8 oz 175 mg sodium  
This information is to help make you aware of the hidden sodium in your food that can add-up in a day.
Tip:  If you are on a very restricted low sodium diet, you might want to look at  non-dairy products like soy milk, rice milk, goat milk, which areusually much lower in sodium, and can be good alternatives at least now and then. Also, look at different brands, the sodium can vary from brand to brand.
