I love any labels that say low/lightly salted, low fat, low sugar, etc. If it is low in one thing it is most always high in something else.
My favorite was looking at Cape Cod potato chips, as hubby and son love these, along with my father in-law. I was debating low fat versus regular. What I found is that the regular was acutally the better deal! It has less sodium, less carb, and healthier fats. Granted the total fat, for the reduced fat variety, was less, but if you broke it down, the lower fat was only lower by 0.5 mg of saturated, though much lower on the healthy fat spectrum (mono and polyunsaturated fats). The sodium was about 30 or more mg higher, the carbs count was a gram or two higher. So I just buy the regular for them. I would rather them eat healthier fats rather than higher sodium and carbs.
Another favorite of mine is the lower sodium soy sauces and terriyaki sauces. Depending on the brand, I found that some regular brands are lower than the name brand reduced variety, by a significant amount too!
When it comes to any food, especially when sodium is concerned, always read the labels!
