If you came directly to this page you should go to my main page on low sodium foods 

Some products that are over 120mg/100g

These products do not fit the low salt guidelines but they are near to the lowest sodium for their type that I have found.

They should be combined with low sodium ingredients and calculations performed to ensure that the final recipe conforms to your dietary guidelines regarding sodium.

Hover the cursor over the products for extra information.

BEERENBERG TAKA TALA sauceContinental Salt reduced soup packets

Kan Tong also have a Lemon Chicken stir-fry sauce  with 216mg/100g. available in Coles.

KanTong Plum Sweet and Sour Stir fry sauceKanTong Sweet & Sour Lite  

The sodium level in these Sweet & Sour sauces, after adding the chicken and rice will be down below 120mg/100g for the meal. If you are willing to risk pushing the sodium level of the final meal to the 120mg limit, you could use a 575g jar of sauce that was as high as 300mg/100g, by using 500g of meat and a weight of rice equal to the cooked weight of the meat sauce.  

To go with some of the simmer sauces shown  You may like to try Traffic Light Rice.

Lemnos paneer cheese


12/2015   mozzarella and bocconcini with sodium under 120mg/100g now available see main section.

From smaller supermarkets and other stores that have a cheese section you can pick up a range of lower salt cheeses. For example Harris Farm Markets has Paesanella Bocconcini in 500g tubs 9333942000014 with 148mg/100g. 

There are not that many choices with hard cheese but aim for sodium of about 330mg per 100g or less
and use sparingly.  Mozzarella and Swiss/Emmental are some possible types.  Paneer cheese is usually very low in sodium but will not melt. You will find some flavoured soft cheeses with about 200mg/100g in plastic pouches. The only reduced  sodium cheddar cheese I have found is Nimbin Elbo Style (I get it from Woolworths or Coles) and I use it in measured small quantitys.
