I have been subjected to low salt food, I feel it is just not acceptable to me, for controlling the bp, is it esential, are there any other modes to define taste buds?

You just have to adjust, learn to season your food other ways. Every night we cook a meal from scratch, most nights we use no such at all and the food is great. The bad thing is when you eat low to no salt when you get something even a bit salty you can't tolerate it.

Try going with the no salt added foods for a while then switch up to the low or reduced salt. Trust me, your taste buds will appreciate it. I use a lemon pepper blend to season things and I didn't think that I would like it because I don't use pepper but it is great on fish, chicken and steak. There are salt alternative products that you can try, they mimic the taste of salt without having the high sodium content. Here are some links you can check out: www.alsosalt.com www.mrsdash.com This site has a side panel of "no salt" spice blends: www.penzeys.com/cgi-bin/penzeys/c-Salt_Free.html?id=iVLoKP53

Enough salt for me is a good taste. I cant taste the food yummy if lacks of salt. I used to have avergae salt of the food.I dont like to eat more if it lacks of salty flavor. Eating is so nice for me if the flavors is tastable.

Try Mrs Dash. I always have several varieties on hand, it's made with many different spices and herbs. They add great flavor to almost anything. Also you could try sea salt which is healthier for you.

Hi, do you know that the cooking utensil you are using will also have effect on the food we cook. I like to cook food especially soup in a corning ware. It will restore the original good taste of food. Add some ingredient that carry natural flavour such as carrot and onion. These food give sweet taste to food.One more tip is that your ingredients must be more than enough to create nice tasty food. I don't even put salt at all in my cooking.Enhance your food taste with some natural ingredient like chilli and lemon.
