Low Sodium Tips
If you’re looking to cut back on sodium, look for low sodium on food labels. The FDA defines a low sodium food as one that provides less than 5% of the daily value of sodium per serving.
There are many ways to build flavor in food without reaching for the salt shaker. Here are some tips:
Mix spices and herbs with fresh citrus juice, vinegar or wine. Coat food thoroughly and refrigerate for an hour before cooking.
Engage the Senses with Herbs and Spices:
Garlic adds rich, savory flavor.
Aromatic herbs help build your flavor foundation.
Chiles and chili powder stimulate the palate.
Add More Savory Flavors With:
Low sodium stocks and broths.
Ginger and onions.
Balance it all With Brightness:
Instead of adding salt to elevate flavors, finish with a splash of vinegar, a squeeze of citrus juice or a handful of chopped herbs.
