What is a no salt added diet?
Yes, salt [sodium chloride] is an essential mineral used by the body. Most of the salt your body needs is gained from the foods you eat, added salt is not necessary unless you have a deficiency from improper nutrition. Iodized table salt also provides iodine, another essential mineral, which you can get from eating fish from the ocean or sea. So with a well balanced diet, added salt is not really necessary.
