Reduced Sodium

Sodium is a mineral that serves many purposes in the body, with the average individual requiring approximately 500 milligrams of sodium per day for these tasks. As the modern diet continues to increasingly rely on pre-packaged goods from food processors, the sodium content in our diets has risen to well beyond the recommended value of less than 2,300 milligrams per day. Table salt, scientifically known as sodium chloride, is one of the main contributors of sodium in the diet. Salt serves several functions in the food industry such as flavor enhancement, dough stabilization, and acts as a natural preservative. Due to these many functions, salt has become a significant component of the modern diet, resulting in individuals consuming up to ten times the amount required by the body.

At Aunt Millie’s Bakeries, we want our products to not only taste great, but to make you feel great too! While Aunt Millie’s works to minimize the amount of sodium in all of our baked goods, we also offer several products that have a “Reduced Sodium” health claim. This claim requires that the product contain at least 25% less sodium than the original product. By incorporating these baked goods into your diet, you can lower your sodium consumption without compromising the taste and flavor of your favorite foods. With this sodium reduction, you will help ward off the negative effects associated with a high-sodium diet, such as hypertension, heart disease, and stroke. When healthy food tastes this good, it’s easy to work towards your goal of decreased sodium consumption, and a happier and healthier you. Enjoy!
