    This lovely seasoning is a delicious replacement for salt, and is part of a Macrobiotic Diet as a healthy salt alternative. I've just been introduced to this seasoning and am currently enjoying it on salads (combined with olive oil to make a lovely dressing), and in many other dishes in the place of salt. It's really scrumptious and adds a depth of flavour to many meals that you wouldn’t achieve with salt.

    How can this be a healthy alternative to salt when it has 2 tablespoons of it in the recipe.  -  04 Apr 2017
