      Could be better.

      Hmmm.

      I bought this as I was fed up with carrying a massive tin of low-sodium salt to my table every dinner time. I eat alot of salt and cannot seem to cut down without the constant concious effort to halt-the-salt which I always forget when its too late. So having a smaller pot on my table seemed to be a good idea- plus I'd probably take less as the pot was not as heavy.

      The pot itself is just over 3 inches tall and has a set of 4 holes to shake the salt out of. It also has a lid for the holes which remains on the salt, presumably to keep out damp.

      I bought my pot a year ago. I have no idea on today's cost but it was around 50p a year ago from Tesco. You get 100 grams for that. Of that 100grams, 0.04grams of it is sodium. This is lower then any of the other low sodium salts out there that I have seen. Added to the "salt" to fill it up, are things like Potassium Chloride, L-lysine Mono Hydrochloride, Glutamic Acid (flavor), Monopotassium Tartrate and Anti Caking Agent.

      The salt is very fine, comes out and onto your plate a little slower then I would have liked- but then, I am used to the big 250 gram or 500 gram tins of lo-salt. So its proably not too bad for most people.

      But my problem is with the taste!

      OK, I am used to low sodium salt. Its been 10 years and only broken if I have to eat where there are sachets of salt or I visit relatives. (Then I am horribly sickened by the taste and have much less then I would have otherwise had.)
      But with this "salt", the taste is so mild, it has me furiously shaking at the pot to get more (much more!) out! It then frustratingly appears like a jet stream of dust- no real substance- its just too fine and I think that's probably the problem: not enough salt and too much filler!
