Frequently Asked Questions

What is this site about?

NotSalty is about helping you find new foods that you can eat, especially if you are trying to reduce the amount of sodium you eat. Food discovery is our game, because everybody eats!

How to you determine if a food is low-sodium?

We base our listings on the manufacturer's nutrition label. If the amount of sodium is 150mg or less per serving, we consider it low-sodium.

However, you still must be careful. Some products list a serving size that is unrealistically small, so you end up eating two or three servings in one sitting! 150mg x 3 is 450mg -- which is a significant portion of the sodium you should eat it one day.

Are you a doctor?

No, I am not a doctor and this is not a medical site. Please do not consider any advice that you find on this site to be a medical recommendation. This site is about discovering new foods and learning from other people's life experiences.

Should I be on a low-sodium diet?

That's a decision for you and your doctor. This site is here to help you on your journey, if you decide to take it.

Are low-sodium products healthy for me?

Low-sodium products have less sodium than high-sodium products. Whether or not they are "healthy" is based on what else is in the product, how it's made, and what your health conditions are. This is another decision that has to be up to you.

Who are you?

My name is Vineel Shah, and I built this site to help people reduce the sodium in their diet. I had a heart attack, and found it hard to find this information on the internet.
