One way we reduced sodium across our portfolio is by using alternative ingredients such as potassium salt. Potassium salt can replace a portion of the sodium, provide a savory flavor to foods and help consumers incorporate more of this essential mineral into their diet. Eating foods with potassium can help maintain a healthy blood pressure, which contributes to heart health. Potassium can help blunt the effects of sodium on blood pressure. Current Dietary Guidelines recommend that adults eat at least 4,700 mg of potassium and no more than 2,300 mg of sodium daily.
If you want to reduce the amount of sodium in your diet, we offer more than 500 products across our Snacks and Meals & Beverages divisions that meet FDA’s strict criteria for being called “healthy,” which includes a limit on sodium per serving. In our Meals & Beverages division, we offer lower sodium varieties of Campbell’s soup, Swanson stock and broth, and V8 beverages to help consumers meet their unique dietary needs. Our Snacks division also offers consumers lower sodium options with products like Cape Cod Lightly Salted chips, Kettle Brand Unsalted Chips, Snyder’s of Hanover Unsalted Mini Pretzels, Emerald Natural Almonds and Walnuts, and more.
