Low salt? No problem! Our healthy prepared meals are low in salt but high in flavour.
But first: what is salt and what does it do for you and your body? Salt is also called sodium chloride (NaCl). By weight, it consists of 40% sodium and 60% chloride - making up this compound.
An excessive amount of salt is not good for us or our health. High salt intake is often linked to health problems like high blood pressure, stomach cancer and heart disease. This is why it is important to manage our salt intake and achieve taste in other ways. Our low-salt meals use herbs and spices to achieve high flavours without unnecessary added salt.
Some amount of salt intake is perfectly healthy (for most people) as salt helps maintain our body's electrolyte balance and overall homeostasis. We season our prepped meals with small amounts of salt to both add flavour and nutrient value.
Our meals are also free of gluten, dairy, sugar and soy to promote nutrient density: providing high amounts of nutrients in proportion to the energy content found in food. This provides beneficial calories to you and your body.
Our fully-prepared low-sodium meals save you time and effort so you are able to easily achieve your diet requirements and health goals.
