I always add Salt after a dish is 75% cooked as I have to eat a low Sodium Diet.By doing this the Food being cooked does not absorb Salt while it cooks and I need much less than I otherwise would.I also do not sprinkle any Salt on my Food after it's fully cooked or when I'm just about to eat it---I prefer cooking the Food a little after adding Salt---helps keep my BP within range.I sprinkle Salt on my Salads,cover these and keep for 10 minutes for the Salt to be absorbed and only then eat these
By doing this I ensure that the quantity of Salt eaten is much less than what I'd have eaten otherwise and very little difference in taste as well since the natural Salt present in each Food component comes into focus this way----we unneccessarily oversalt our Foods and suffer for it!!!!
