Taste buds are constantly being replaced on our tongues. This is good news when it comes to reducing salt in our diets because it can help with becoming accustomed to the taste of foods with less salt. It can take about four weeks to get about four weeks to get used to low-salt diet and, within three to six months, the palate recovers enough to be described as truly normal for the first time since infancy, helping us enjoy the real and subtle flavors of well-prepared foods.
CHOOSING LOW-SALT PRODUCTS
But fresh foods and eat them without added salt.
Choose low salt, not "salt-reduced" foods.
Look at the sodium content on the nutrition information on food packaging using a standard comparative weight to compare similar products and the "per serving" column to determine how much you will actually eat.
Low sodium: Less than 120 mg/3.5 oz (100g)
Moderate sodium: Between 120-400 mg/3.5 oz (100g)
High sodium: More than 400 mg/3.5 oz (100g)
