I’m always on the lookout for new low/no sodium products, as is anyone trying to follow a low sodium diet. The good news is that the dangers of excess salt in the diet are now well known. So finding products has gotten easier because food manufacturers are creating more low sodium products. As a result, grocery stores are stocking more and more low sodium items. But it’s still a challenge.
This page is about resources for low sodium foods. Whether you’re just beginning your low sodium journey or have been at it for a while, my hope is that you’ll find the information helpful. I’m quite fortunate because my local grocery store chain stocks many low/no sodium products. Also, I’m about 30 minutes away from Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, other good sources for low sodium products. Even so, I still regularly order items online. Sometimes directly from the manufacturer, but most often from either Amazon or Healthy Heart Market.
The good thing about Amazon is that if you find a favorite product, you can usually buy several units of the same item. (However, this might not be such a good thing if you don’t use it up quickly enough.) You can also get special breaks on shipping, and their customer service is very good.
Amazon sells quite a few low/no sodium products, more than you might imagine. I’ve created a special Please, DON’T pass the salt! wish list of my favorite products. I’ve included information on the sodium content of most of the items in addition to brief notes about how I use the products. And, yes, these are products I use regularly. There are many more low/no sodium products available from Amazon. However, the ones on the wish list are products I like, I use, and recommend. Take a look to see what’s available. You might consider ordering some from an online source or maybe just looking for them in your local grocery stores.
I’ll be doing something similar with products from Healthy Heart Market, Trader Joe’s, and other good sources for low/no sodium products. Be sure to check back for updates. Also, if you have information about a favorite low/no sodium product, please feel free to share the information.
