Can I replace salt with a salt product with less sodium?

  1. I don't like eating without salt. Also when I use herbs I miss the salt. Can I replace the salt with a salt product with less sodium?

  1. Patricia Schutte, nutritionist The mineral sodium in salt is responsible for the blood pressure-increasing effect of salt. In salt products such as â € ˜LoSaltâ € ™ and â € Jozo consciousâ € ™ part of the sodium has been replaced by potassium. So these products do indeed contain less sodium than regular table salt. If you take as much of this as normal, you will consume less sodium. Do not just use potassium salt if you have poor kidney function or if you use water pills or anti-inflammatories. Potassium salts can then cause too high a potassium level in your blood. This can lead to heart problems in some cases. Consult with a doctor or dietitian if you can use it.

Replace salt with herbs

  1. Our advice is to add no or as little salt as possible to your food. Many products already contain salt because the manufacturer adds it. You quickly get too much of it. Too much salt can lead to high blood pressure. For adults, the advice is to consume a maximum of 6 grams of salt per day.

Instead of salt you can use the following seasonings, for example: fresh herbs such as basil, parsley and cilantro dried spices such as (cayenne) pepper, (smoked) paprika and cumin dried herbs (mixes) that do not contain salt onion, garlic, ginger, chilli a little (balsamic) vinegar a tablespoon of lemon juice If you've always added salt to your food, less salt or leaving it out may taste different at first. With the use of herbs you can add a lot of flavor to your food. Over time, you will miss the salt less and less. View more tips to eat less salt on the website of the Nutrition Center.
