Matza (Matzo, Matzah) Is an important product for the salt conscious as
it is the only cracker type product (like a thin SAO) that I have found
in Australia that has no added salt. It is availabe by mail order from http://lowsodiumfoods.com.au/
For daily use try to buy the
smallest size you can find. If you can not then for convenience I like
to break up a few sheets and keep them handy in an air-tight container.
As it is a Kosher product it is only popular in certain areas. I put
this question to the Salt Matters Mailing list and had back from
Hilarey the following comprehensive reply with some additional
information from Dave and Rick.
"If it's any help,

By the way,
there is also low-salt matzo meal (coarse or fine) which is
a good substitute for breadcrumbs. I think wholemeal matzos and matzo
meal have the most flavour. Here in the "Bagel Belt", there are
also Gippsland Dairy Slicing Cheese and Skim Milk cheese,
similar to cottage cheese but low-salt. If you've ever seen "dry curd"
mentioned in Russian and other Eastern European recipes, this is what
they're talking about."
are fortunate to get Solomon's Matzos all year round, at Supabarn in
Civic, Canberra and at our local IGA at O'Connor. We buy the wholemeal
ones; white ones are available, but don't taste as good as the
while you are in the deli, look around or ask about low-salt foods
and sauces etc - Our local deli stocks some low-salt foods, including
low salt bread and Maleny products. Lane Cove
Coles has a Kosher section (somewhat to my surprise). Has
Matzos and Matzo meal (to replace breadcrumbs). Has a number of other
low salt items also."
Also Coles at Barkly Square in Brunswick, plus Myer Food Hall in
the city (at a price premium), and David Jones Food Hall (also at a

Here is a plea.
Would somebody import this product again. It was imported by Franklins
and I am down to my last packet and now making my own version. They are
just the perfect size for a snack and should have a place in the no
fat,salt,sugar,,, market and sales would be all year.
