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...

It's not that I am so anti-salt. Salt can have its place. I am, however, anti-salt in seasonings because the more seasoning you add, the more salt you are adding. Usually, salt is listed as the first ingredient often followed by sugar because the sugar will help it not taste so salty. You lose control over the amount of sodium is in the dish. You just keep shaking it on or in. You have no clue. Sodium can add up quickly, especially with other canned or frozen ingredients that are not labeled with no salt added. Try keeping your ingredients fresh, use salt-free seasonings and use a salt substitute like our Table Tasty. This really makes a difference when lowering sodium and adding flavor.
