Hi Jan,


I recommend limiting the total amount of sodium in the diet. All forms of soy sauce are high in sodium therefore, all forms of soy sauce, regardless of the type, should be limited based on the amount in it.

Food naturally contains all the sodium anyone needs so we do not need to add any to our food.

However, many people do, and so therefore, my guidelines for sodium are how to keep it within safe limits as recommended by the Institute Of Medicine, which are 1200-1500 mgs/day

Most soy sauce type products run around 700-1000 mgs of sodium per TB. So, not a lot of room there :)

In practice, the amount of sodium in any packaged product or recipe should not exceed one mg of sodium per 1 calorie. So, if a product or a recipe has 100 calories, the sodium should be no more than 100.

I do not recommend Bragg's (see link below) and beyond that, pick the type of soy sauce/tamari etc you personally prefer.
