The refrigerator light goes on...

This is a good example of using a low-sodium food and then adding a measured amount of salt to the recipe for flavor but still being able to control the total amount.

Low-sodium Ketchup

Using any low-sodium product gives you more control over the final sodium content in a recipe. With low-sodium ketchup, this is especially true because a tablespoon of regular ketchup has about 175 mg of sodium while the low-sodium version has only about 5mg per tablespoon.

1 Tbsp. low-sodium catsup = 16 calories, 0g fat, 0g sat fat, 0g mono fat, 0g protein, 4g carbohydrates, 3mg sodium, 0mg cholesterol

There is 1.7 micrograms (mcg) of Vitamin K in 1/4 cup of low-sodium ketchup, making it a Coumadin® (warfarin) safe ingredient.
