From 9 - 15 March 2020, it is Salt Awareness Week. This week also marks a year since we launched our Seaweed Seasoning as a healthier alternative to the salt pot. Twelve months on, and it’s one of our best sellers.
Too much salt is a serious thing. Action Salt states that "a high salt diet raises our blood pressure, increasing the risk of having a stroke or developing heart disease" and that it is also "linked to osteoporosis, kidney disease and stomach cancer."
This is where seaweed comes in. The natural saltiness of Seaweed paired with the big flavours of our award-winning blends, mean you can banish the salt caddy to the cupboard!
1g of salt is equivalent to 15g of our Seaweed Seasoning. Better still, seaweed boosts food with extra vitamins and minerals too including essential iodine. There's no fancy footwork (or cooking) required...simply sprinkle seaweed instead of salt.
We have a flotilla of recipes moored here, but representing the recommended daily 6g of salt, here are our top six, super-simple ways to sprinkle seaweed instead of salt.
1: Club sandwich with seaweed seasoning
3. Courgetti spaghetti
4. Shell on prawns
5. Summer salad of feta, tomato, pomegranate, orange, french beans and Seaweed Seasoning
