saltforlifeSalt for Life

Salt for Life is a revolutionary new salt that blends potassium salt from Canada and sea salt from Brazil to provide a healthier alternative to table salt without compromising on taste.

By using potassium, a necessary yet under-consumed nutrient, as a main ingredient as opposed to sodium, this innovative seasoning has 75% less sodium than ordinary table salt. Take your usual food choices and swap them with recipes that use Salt for Life, and you will see (and feel) the difference.
