Just a quick note: Almost all pastas are salt free. I just checked my supply cupboard and the only one I found that had sodium was the tri-colored rotini and it was only 10mg in a serving. Just don't add salt to the water when you boil it! Any of your pasta mixes (like Knorr Pasta in Sauce) is loaded but that's from the seasoning mix!

Thank God in all things!

My favorite low salt product that I recently found is Alvarado Street Bakery No Salt Sprouted Multi - Grain 100% whole grain bread. It is made with organic sprouted wheat and each slice contains only 10 mg of sodium.

I love bread and I was surprised at how good this tastes. Alvarado Street Bakery online has a search store locator. This bread is more expensive than the other bread, I think I paid about six dollars for it.

I would like to know if anyone knows of any other low salt bread or buns.

Every day is an opportunity to make a new happy ending!

I think there is a FROG Jam by Amish wedding,too! I wonder if you can get it online and have it sent from TN ~? Or other areas Like PA where more Amish live.
You are right it does stand for ~Figs,Raspberries,Orange ,Ginger.
I was hoping to see a triple jam like my sister used to make ~ blueberry/strawberry/raspberry and even a quadruple jam she made ~Blue/Straw/Black/Rasp. ~!!!! LOVE my toast & jam! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am looking for a source of the Amish jams here in Arizona. In the meantime I use Simply Fruits by Smucker's which has about the same nutritional values. Hopping
F-R-O-G Jam sounds so good. I though it meant Fully Rely on God, but research is that is Fig,Raspberry, Orange and Ginger. Still sounds terrific. And way better than Smucker's :)

I am truly interested in the Amish things you have mentioned. I am going to see if I can find these. I am trying to find anything I can use to get the sodium. I want to tell you and maybe you know this. I was looking at some of the most popular soups are ridiculously high in sodium and that is for one serving. (one I looked at was 680 per serving.) This team is one of the most beneficial that I know of for those of us who are serious about getting to the healthy range. (usually 1500 - 2300) My doctor says 1500 for Meineres Disease

When you are making beans from scratch. Be sure to count 239 beans into the pan. That way you won't get gas.

One more bean makes them two forty!

latest low sodium food find?

Making my own beans from scratch- Too easy in the crock pot
Kidney beans
black beans
pinto beans

just cook them up and freeze them in 1 cup containers for salads and addition t other foods. I wasn't getting enough fiber or folate until I discovered beans- and they are LOW sodium if they aren't canned.

I make my own breakfast sausage ( Spark recipe) , taco mixes, and cream soup mixes. Saves a TON of sodium. I get great information from a web site called : http://www.megaheart.com/index.html
I like to eat :) I like to bake- so i use the no sodium baking powder and baking soda.

i have noticed a few members have written about low salt marinara and low salt beans they have found, I have not found ANY low salt marinara's in my stores, and if you can't in yours either you can search spark recipes for 'flavorful low sodium marinara' one of our people have already re-invented the wheel for us just make sure you use a food processor or blender or else it is more like salsa. also you can use dried beans in your crock pot with seasoning (try google for spice ideas) to get "canned" beans you can freeze for days you don't have time (2 cups = one can) both of these are method hacks you can do to eliminate sodium if you can't find the ones people are mentioning.

No salt added rotel (tomatoes and green chilies)
Ezekiel bread: low sodium - very weird taste/texture but perfect for a strong flavored burger/sandwich/peanut butter & jam.
NO salt added Heinz Ketchup has been a God send.

I made a wonderful beef soup the other day using Victorian Epicure Beef Boullian base and their Oven Roast seasoning. There was 136 cal per serving, 2.8 fat, 157 sodium, 6.7 carbs, 2.8 fiber, and 15 protein. A lot of their goods are low in sodium. Unfortunately the seasoning I used is no longer on their website so I don't know if I'll be able to get more. There was so much flavor it was great.

Wish I could find low sodium cottage cheese. Wal-Mart here doesn't have it. No place I've looked does, not even the "health food" stores.

Thank you for sharing your experience! I think it holds true for many hospital situations. At least you are aware and well-educated so you can take steps to deal with the situation. And you brought it to their attention, good for you!

this is the opposite of a low-sodium food find. I was appalled at the food that was served in the hospital during my recent stay! I know the cafeterias have all be outsourced but really!!! The cafeterias themselves are now like shopping mall food courts and Sunnybrook Hospital has one with a Pizza Pizza, the Pita Hut, 2nd Cup coffee, Swiss Chalet Chicken, etc. The food the patients get is horrible. It's all trucked in. They ordered me a Heart Healthy as well as a Diabetic menu - you get no choices yourself. One day, I was served a turkey sandwich made with deli turkey meat and chicken broth - I figure it was at least 1800 mg of sodium in those 2 items alone. When I asked about that I was told that Heart Healthy you see so much of nowadays here in Canada only means low in fat and low in cholesterol. I was told that if a Dr. wanted you to have low sodium it had to be a low-sodium diet which is NO salt. No happy medium. After spending about 10 days in my local hospital last January, I went prepared and had a grocery bag of non perishable goods with me to substitute when I was given unpalatable or unsuitable foods. I will admit I don't always make the best choices when it comes to sodium - who does all the time? But, it's my choice not my only choice.

I guess most of you already know about this. But if you rinse anything that is canned, you can reduce the sodium by 40%.

I get recipes from Kraft Canada all the time and recently they sent an e-mail with one I found interesting - Slow Cooker French Onion Soup. I love French Onion Soup and have missed not having it because it has so much sodium in it. I reviewed Kraft's recipe however and saw that their version was about 580 gr per 1 cup bowl. I have a dry mix to make Bullion that is very low in sodium and I substituted that for their Kraft Low Sodium Bullion and diet ginger ale in place of either beer or non-alcoholic beer. If I've done my calculations right (math is not my thing) my version got down to (per bowl) 139 cal, 4 gr fat, 195 gr sodium, 21 carbs, 3 of which we can discount because they are fibre, and 3 gr of protein. And it turned out good! It was a bit on the sweet side so next time I might just use water instead of ginger ale - and, that will lower the sodium even more.

I like Kettle Chips because they're thick and crunchy, but I like them better with a little flavor. Didn't think about it before - I could add other seasonings besides salt.

I like the taste of them, but if you can find a low sodium dip or something like that it may work.

Newest find: Kettle Brand Unsalted Potato Chips

They're not quite the same without salt, and that keeps me from eating too many. They are thick and crunchy. Suppose you could add a tiny dash of salt if you wanted.

I found a recipe last night but forgot to write down where it came from! Crock Pot Chronicles? Anyway, I wrote out the recipe and made it this morning and we had it for lunch. considering the average can of low sodium soup has approx, 400-500 mg of sodium, this soup at 171 mg per serving is quite low. It was wonderful. I made a few changes to the recipe and this is what I ended up with:


Real Tomato Soup

Ingredients
1 can Accent Diced Tomatoes with Onion and Green Pepper (16 oz)
1/2 c water
1/2 c chopped onion
1/2 c chopped celery
1 6-oz can tomato paste
1 tbs dried parsley
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp Stevia
2 dashes Worchestershire Sauce
fresh parsley (optional)

Nutritional Info per serving -
Fat: 6.0g
Carbohydrates: 18.6g
Calories: 99.2
Protein: 4.6g
Sodium: 171mg
Fiber: 4

1. If desired, seed the tomatoes.
2. In a large saucepan combine ingredients
3. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered about 20 mins or until celery and onions are very tender. Cool mixture slightly.
4. Place 1/3 mixture in a blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Repeat with rest of mixture.

Serves 3

I was on Mrs. Dashed web site yesterday and they now have salad dressings and season packets for chilli, beef stew ETC. I had not been aware of them. We are in a smaller town but do have a Walmart so will check this out next shopping trip. Not one for Spaghetti which would be helpful. I love my pasta.

I have totally given up on breads and bagels, and just go with the Nabisco Hint of Salt Wheat Thins and Triscuits. Swiss cheese is almost always much lower in sodium than any of the other cheeses.

Bottled salad dressings to take to potlucks with a salad require careful checking, though. Recently I have been using Annie's Naturals Lite Raspberry Vinaigrette. A friend has irritable bowel syndrome and can't tolerate seeds, but this seems to be smooth enough. The sodium is 55 mg per 2 Tbsp, which is pretty low compared to most bottled dressings.

I found blue corn tortilla chips with only 80mg sodium per 1 oz. Sometimes you just want some crunchy snacks.

I don't think I've already put this forward - if I have - please forgive my bad memory! My DD talked me into going to an Epicure party one night. A company in British Columbia has come up with a whole line of spices, dip mixes, consume starters, condiments, and I can't remember what all. The majority of their foods are very low in sodium. The only complaint I have so far in using their products is that they suggest using way more than is needed to make something - the mixes, etc. if the directions are followed are way too strong and my daughter and I find we only need about half for most things. Their items are sold at parties like Tupperware and Pampered Chef but you can also order online. For eg, their beef bouillon base has only 60 mg of sodium per cup, their beef and steak seasoning has 5 mg of sodium per tsp, and their oven roast seasoning has no sodium. Their website is http://www.epicureselections.com/en/produc

Well I think I am going to start asking the Aldi's manager to get in more Fit and Active foods in. They are pretty good about the sodium and fat .

I will have to go check to see what low sodium products Wal mart has. Its really close to us.

GREEN 1950 - just checked my Orowheat sandwich thins, I had in my freezer and the sodium is 170 for each sandwich thin. I found Sara Lee WW Bread for 45 cal per slice and 85mg of sodium, comes out to about the same for two slices, but the slices are bigger. Just a thought.

I buy the lower sodium Bagel Thins at Wal-Mart. Also buy lower -sodium bagels made by Western Advantage (I think, will have to research that next time I go) I also buy these at Wal-Mart. The manager sees me coming and says "what do you want me to order next?" LOL He did tell me that he was very surprised to see the no-sodium foods that I requested selling better than he ever thought possible. Now he is trying to get more products that have no sodium, or lower sodium. In the deli, he has ordered the lower sodium ham, turkey and roast beef. He told me they are selling out. So we are not alone.

Glad it worked. Don't have a Sprouts here but you get some good stuff there. Still trying to find lower sodium Bagel thins here. Do I have it wrong? Is it sandwich thins I am supposed to be looking for. Will have to look back. I could swear I saw someone on the thread mention Bagel thins. We love an occasional 1/2 bagel with reduced fat cream cheese for breakfast or my late snack as a diabetic type 2 but they sure are high calorie and have a bit more sodium than I'd like too.

Kacey, I checked it out and it worked this time. there are 39 stores in my area that carry Organic but they are in the expensive stores that I normally do not shop in. I noticed their product is in SPROUTS and I will check it out when I go there.

Thanks Bev I'll give a look out for the Sara Lee. I didn't realize they made bread too.
I have found that the brand Organic Valley has several lowered sodium cheeses that are around 170 mgs for a serving. The sizes of serving differ. That's pretty good for cheeses. They have them at Jewel Osco and Tony's Finer Foods here in Chicago but they have a site you can go on to see if they have it in stores where you live, you just enter your zip code. It's
www.organicvalley.coop/ Click on the products link at the top and choose your product then at the bottom of the page is a store locator where they will tell you who sells their products in your area.

Lin, the next time you go to COSTCO, check out (if they have it) The ECO Drink, has ALL vitamins needed and NO SODIUM. My nail grow fantastic and my nails usually split/chip,but as long as I drink this I am fine. It comes with its own 16 oz bottle, you just add water to the packet, but I found it was too strong for me, so I mix it in a 32 oz bottle of water with lots of ice and I get my water and vitamins at the same time. Potassium and less sodium work hand in hand. So you will need at least 3500 mg of potassium to 1500 mg of sodium a day. If they don't have ECO drink, ask your COSTCO manager to order it for you. Have a great day. Bev

One packet, has NO, CALORIES, SUGAR, CARB, SODIUM or FAT. Has 100% Vit, A, C, D, E, B12, B7 and I could go on and on. It has 31 antioxidants. I feel good when I use this product.

Bev - I was in our Loblaws Superstore yesterday and I went down the pasta aisle. We are encouraged to buy products with the label "Blue Menu" as being heart healthy and such. They really are no better according to the nutritional information on the backs or sides of packaging I've found. It was the Blue Menu Whole Grain pasta that had the salt - 50 mg. per serving. When I looked at all of the packages of white, whole wheat and whole grain for spaghetti, macaroni, and shell pasta, only the Blue Menu ones had salt. The others had either 1 mg per serving or none. We should have looked more closely. Our stores are getting more and more sugar free and low salt items but nowhere near what's available in the States. Even if we go to Costco and to Walmart which are American, they offer what other Canadian stores have. A problem I find here is that if they lower the sugar, they up the fat and/or the salt, and if they lower the fat, up the sugar and salt, and if they lower the salt, up the sugar and fat. I love Jello, and it's great for my nails. I switched to the sugar-free with a lot fewer flavour choices as soon as I was diagnosed with Diabetes. I've pretty much had to discontinue altogether now because the salt content is so high in the ones available here (65 mg for a 1/8 of a pkg serving). There is definitely one brand of tomatoes with no salt added (just what's in the tomatoes), maybe 2 but I don't think there is one for tomato sauce or paste here. A lot of the soups now have 1/2 the salt they used to but they've added about 600 mg. of potassium to make up for it and even at 1/2 for the salt, it's about 1/2 my daily allowance just for a 1 cup bowl of soup - not worth it. A lot of the so called "diet" packages of pre-prepared meals that are low in carbs and/or fat are very very high in salt - most of them are more than I can have in a single day. We keep checking labels and honing in on anything unfamiliar on the shelves that may be low in everything. When I go to the States, I stock up in lots of grocery items.

I have food 4 less here, and most of my sodium free foods I can get at Wal-Mart. I do have Trader Joe's (which I stopped shopping in because they have had many of their foods recalled because they come from other countries and the FDA doesn't approve them), But I do go to Whole "paycheck" foods.

Kacey,

I just found Sara Lee WW Bread with 45 cal per slice and 90 mg of sodium per slice. So if you make a sandwich, both slices would come up to one slice of regular bread. Let me check my milk, my milk is the Almond Breeze unsweetened but the sod is 160 per 8 oz glass. BUT, I did find, FF Sour Cream 2 T 20 cal, and 40 of sodium. It is called Naturally yours and the container is black and white like a cow. It is awesome. My son cannot tell the difference and he is fussy. Bev

Kroger has no salt added Diced Tomatoes with 15mg of sodium per half cup. They also have Kroger brand at Food 4 Less.

Thanks Bev I'll look for the thin sandwich there then. Do they sell the bagel thins there as well? and are they both low sodium? I take it there is no Strack and Van Til's where you are ? I'm going looking in Walmart and Trader Joe's next so I will let you know

Has anyone ever found a low in sodium skim or fat free milk? If you have please please tell me the brand and where you buy it!

Lin, Being Italian, pasta is one thing I will not give up, so I watch the sodium pretty good. Bev

Lin, I am surprised that WW pasta has more sodium. All the pasta that I buy has zero sodium. Could be the brand. Bev

Kacey, Whole Foods carries the thin sandwich, I know the one here in No CA sells it, because I bought it. Still looking too for low-sodium cheese. Will keep you posted if I find it. Bev

I found two in Chicago Creamo natural creamy peanut butter at Tony's Finer Foods (Centrella chain) And low sodium colby jack cheese and mozzarella string cheese low sodium at Strack and Van Til Market. Its hard to find low sodium cheese as salt is used in the making of it.

I have not been able to find stores in Chicago that sell Bagel thins or Boar's Head lower sodium roast beef. Can anyone point me to a chain store like whole foods traderjoes or something else that sells it?
