Healthy Seasonings 

Who says that you can’t have a snack seasoning that’s flavorful and healthy? While consumers have long known the benefits of lower sodium diets, taste is still key in leaving them satisfied.

What Should Your Daily Sodium Intake Be? 

Current dietary guidelines recommend that sodium intake is limited to less than 2,300 milligrams per day for the average American, with children and adults over 51 being limited to 1,500 milligrams daily.

Benefits of Less Sodium 

The benefits of a lower sodium diet range from reducing hypertension, or high blood pressure, to reducing rates of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Despite this knowledge, most Americans currently consume around 3,400 milligrams of sodium per day.

Food companies and restaurants can lead the way to happy and healthy consumers by making changes that benefit health, without making compromises on taste.
