Scientists have searched for years for a palatable alternative to salt. While the food industry has found acceptable substitutes for sugar, fat, and other ingredients, it has been unsuccessful in finding one for salt despite two decades of effort. Until now, the only known substitute for salt has been potassium chloride. While it has a salty flavor, it leaves a bitter aftertaste that is best described as awful. ÂWe have found a way to keep the salty flavor of the potassium chloride while masking the metallic taste,Â states Joan Warren of AlsoSalt Âand we do it naturally.Â AlsoSalt holds patents worldwide.
Doctors and dietitians across the United States are distributing sample packets of AlsoSalt to their patients on a low sodium diet. AlsoSalt not only helps people reduce sodium in their diet while enjoying the taste of salt, it provides nutrients that are essential to good health. Its two main ingredients are potassium chloride and L-lysine monohydrochloride.
Concerned with the apparent link between high sodium intake and high blood pressure and other health conditions, physicians often prescribe a low or no sodium diet. Too much sodium causes the body to retain water, which can hype the pressure in the arteries. High blood pressure is the leading cause of strokes and a major factor in heart disease. Rebalancing sodium intake with potassium can help offset this dangerous effect by dampening the impact of sodium and lowering blood pressure.
Sample packets of AlsoSalt are available to the medical community by contacting us via email or toll-free 800-381-SALT.
