    Has anyone tried 'No Salt'...Is it Primal

    Primal Fuel
    Here's what I'm talking about.


    No Salt Salt Substitute, 11-Ounce Can: Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food

    Wondering if anyone has tried it, and what they thought

    I wouldn't use anything that is supposed to be a "substitute" (fake sugar, meats, fats etc.), salt is no exception. In my "book" there is nothing wrong with moderate consumption of salt as long as it is natural, i.e., unbleached sea salt, fleur de sel, Himalayan salt, natural black or red volcanic salt etc. If use of salt is unacceptable for medical reasons, there are plenty of spices and herbs that make stuff delicious without salt.

    It's a potassium chloride. Not really an unnatural (fake) compound.

    it's probably ok, but i would just stick with salt. the primal food pyramid is filled with foods that don't have a bunch of sodium added to them like the SAD, so adding a little salt to you food is good to give you the sodium we need. it also makes it taste better.

    A few months ago I would have said no. But now I use that salt to supplement my potassium needs. So it's Primal by way of being a supplement. Just measure it carefully. You DON'T want to overdose on that.

    I use real salt since I eat on the low carb end and having a bit of sodium in my diet is good.

    I eat a LOT of salt and I also eat the no salt for the same reason Knifegill does, to get more potassium. It does taste a little weird at first, but you get used to it.
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

    I also use it for potassium supplementation. I find it "tastes best" (or perhaps more accurately tastes least) when I put in scrambled egg yolk.
