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...

Did you know just one tablespoon of soy sauce typically contains a whopping 1,000 milligrams of sodium?
That's about half of the recommended limit for sodium intake in an entire day. Consider soy sauce a high-sodium food.
Low Sodium Soy Sauce Substitute Recipe
(This recipe doesn't taste exactly like the real thing but it is pretty good.)
2 Tablespoons No or Low Sodium beef broth or stock* (Whole Foods regular is lower than most low sodium brands)
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons molasses
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup boiling water
If needed, at the end, add Table Tasty salt substitute, to taste
Combine all of the ingredients and let set for about an hour for the flavors to mingle. Use sauce as is, or for a thicker sauce, let simmer to reduce sauce to about 3 Tablespoons (about half).
*Whole Foods regular broth is lower than most low sodium brands.
