Healthy salt substitutes that taste like real salt

Report as

Unfortunately, all the salt substitutes use the same mineral, which is a salt of potassium, and it does have a bit of an "off" taste. I'm on a low sodium diet myself, and instead of using a salt substitute, I try to make my food tasty with herbs and spices, lemon juice and various vinegars, and hot sauce (we like Sriracha--that's the brand you see on the table at most Chinese restaurants, in those large squeeze bottles--it has more flavor notes than, say, Tabasco sauce, and can be found in most grocery stores these days--and in all oriental grocers.) I find that making my food more flavorful with these additions has not been too hard, and I still enjoy my cooking. One more thing: once you've been on your reduced sodium diet for a while, you will lose that "salt tooth" (the salt version of a sweet tooth--there's also a "fat tooth"!)

Some of the healthy salt substitute include Spices, herbs packaged snack foods, such as potato chips and pretzels which contain high-sodium content foods. Herbs are aromatic plants while spices are dried parts of a vegetative substance like roots, seeds or barks.
