Why Choosing Low sodium seasoning makes a BIG difference
If you are watching your salt intake, choosing low sodium seasonings can be a key part of your plan. The serving size of a lot of seasonings is 1 tsp or less and many of them can be packed full of salt.
Being that 1 tsp of pure salt is 2300 mg of sodium (as much, or more, then we should have in one entire day) it’s easy to go overboard when using traditionally bought seasonings.
When comparing this recipe to the store bought everything bagel seasoning: 1 tsp of the store bough variety has FOUR TIMES the amount of sodium that this recipe has. With only one tsp of the store bought seasoning you will get 25% of your daily value of sodium.
One tsp of this everything but the bagel seasoning recipe has only 66mg of sodium (or 3% DV). If you want, you can completely omit the salt too- the flavor is still on point without it!
That’s quite a difference!
