Low Sodium Broth vs Reduced Sodium Broth: What's the Scoop?
At LonoLife we have an open dialogue with our consumers. We love to hear what you think of our products, how we can improve, and what new products you’d like to see us make. Which is kind of how our all-new Reduced Sodium Chicken Broth came to life!
There are a big group of you out there who are concerned about your sodium intake -- either because your doctor has recommended you consume less of it, or because you just feel it is a healthier lifestyle choice. We already have a Low Sodium Beef Broth, but you wanted a chicken broth version with less sodium. So that’s exactly what we created -- just for you!
Customers are often asking us what the difference is between low sodium and reduced sodium, so we figured we’d go granular and give you all the details here:
Foods that have 140 milligrams or less of sodium in one serving are considered low-sodium products. In addition to looking for the amount of sodium, check the top of the nutrition facts panel for the definition of one serving. The food may be low in sodium according to the milligrams in one serving, but if the defined serving size is less than you normally eat in one portion, then you will get more sodium than the label indicates.

Reduced sodium is slightly different to low-sodium. When you see “reduced sodium” on the label, it means that item has 25 percent less sodium than the amount normally found in the regular product. (Source: https://healthyeating.sfgate.com/considered-low-sodium-nutrition-panel-8847.html)
All our products are 3rd party tested by an independent lab to make sure we always meet the numbers we put on our packets, so you can feel confident knowing what you see is what you get.
And just as a reminder, each person’s ideal sodium intake varies depending on body type and pre-existing health conditions, and some people actually benefit from a higher salt intake, such as endurance athletes, people with low blood pressure or medical conditions such as POTs, and those following a strict keto diet. It’s all about knowing your own body.
At least now you have more choices!
