You probably know it’s a good idea to eat less salt, or even avoid adding salt to your food.  Too much salt can lead to problems, such as hypertension (high blood pressure).

Last week, Kraft Foods announced they’re going to add less salt to some of their products.  They have promised to use 10% less salt in their crackers, meat, and cheese – in some of their 1,000 plus products.  Read a news article here from Huffington Post.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/18/kraft-to-cut-salt-in-its_n_504703.html

“We are reducing sodium because it’s good for consumers and, if done properly, it’s good for business,” Rhonda Jordan, president of health & wellness at Kraft Foods, said in a statement. “A growing number of consumers are concerned about their sodium intake, and we want to help them translate their intentions into actions.”

I applaud Kraft, and hope other food manufacturers do the same too.  And how about reducing or eliminating added sugars from products, too?

Do YOU have any experience with reducing or eliminating salt in your diet?  Any ideas for how to keep food flavorful without so much salt?  PLEASE COMMENT below!
