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...

Crown Prince was one of the first cans of no salt added I found and it is good. Here is some helpful information about tuna and mercury.
Light tunas (skipjack and tongol) typically have lower levels of mercury than white tunas (albacore and yellowfin). The “light” labeling isn't always 100% accurate about this.
Try to find some indication that the tuna is either skipjack or tongol if you want lower-mercury tuna
Give it a try and enjoy!
