Salt, also known as sodium chloride, is made up of 40% sodium and 60% chloride.
As an essential nutrient, we certainly need some sodium in our diets for muscle contractions, nerve transmissions, and for the balance of body fluids and electrolytes.
For these daily functions, it is estimated that we need about 500mg of sodium daily.
With just a touch of inland natural salt, FitChef meals remain mostly low in sodium.
We are specific about our salt because we believe that sea salt is not an option as the sea is sadly one of the most polluted spaces and needs urgent attention.
We would prefer to use a real inland salt source. Inland salt has more trace minerals which arguably could have small positive impacts on health.
We feel that our dedication to salt selections shows our commitment to find the best version of any ingredient… always trusting nature.
