Current UK government guidelines recommend that adults should
consume no more than 6g of salt per day. How does your diet fare
and how can LoSalt help?
Remember that around 75% of the salt we consume is hidden in
everyday food products such as bread, cheese, biscuits and cereal.
Check the labels to compare brands and find the products with lower
salt content. Find more detail about products with high salt
content on the NHS website.
Cooking from scratch allows you to monitor how much salt you are
If you add salt when you cook or you sprinkle salt on food at
the table, LoSalt is an excellent way to cut your intake from this
source by two thirds.
A low sodium diet could really help make a difference and
maintain a healthy blood pressure.
As LoSalt is a blend of sodium chloride and potassium chloride,
using LoSalt as part of your diet will increase the potassium in your diet, which
can also help maintain a healthy blood pressure.
Foods that contain potassium include fruit and vegetables
(including dried ones), potatoes, pulses, nuts and seeds, milk and
yoghurt, fish, poultry and wholegrain cereals. You can stock up on
these foods and keep your blood pressure at a healthy level.
However, check with your doctor before increasing the potassium
in your diet. Some people - for example, those with kidney disease
- may need to avoid both potassium and salt.
