Sourcing Ingredients Online

If you have access to a device that connects to the internet and a valid credit card, you will find pretty much every ingredient in a low sodium form on line. I can't tell you the long list of items I found for myself at online shopping websites. It's not just ingredient or food sources that are valuable online finds. It's also the resources that are so beneficial to you in terms of learning about low sodium diets, sodium levels in foods, new technology to help us in our quest to eat LoSo and enjoy what we are eating. Amazon is probably my most used commerce site. They really do have everything. Having an Amazon Account with a "Prime Membership" will not only save you money, but get a lot of the products you buy in your hands much quicker. As great as Amazon is they don't have everything. Be open to a search to find even better or refined deals on other sites.

The real key to having the best experience shopping for LoSo ingredients online isn't the items themselves its the protocol of standard online shopping. A well defined search will give you the best results to pick from. This means the correct "search terms" sent to Google will return the best search results. Example: If I want to see what I can get as far as Potato Chip that are low or no salt, my search would be "low sodium potato chips" if I want to know how much sodium are in regular potato chips, my query would look like "how much sodium is in potato chips". These are very simplified search terms, but in fact Google wants to give you the best answers in the form of search results to the query you entered. Be very precise, ask in a question form.
