I have had to manage my salt since 1976 when I had open heart surgery. I have written and tried to encourage others to lessen their salt intake. I was thrilled when the dietary guidelines were changed.
Now I find on the grocery store shelf - canned peas without salt!
Has anyone tried these?
My brand was DelMonte - simply look for the red label - No Salt Added!
No, but I'm happy to see it.
I have no health need to avoid salt, but it is so over used that I avoid it where I can.
Well, they'll just hafta pry the salted peas from my cold dead pea-green fingers! LOL
I'm just kidding!
I'm a salt lover, but have just recently started trying to decrease my salt intake. My doc says my cholesterol is a little high...
I've not tried the unsalted ones, but maybe I will. I do like fresh and frozen peas the best anyway, and use less salt on those......but then, I usually load those down with butter, so I think that might cancel out the entire purpose...
I'm glad there are the healthier choices on the grocery shelves now for you and that you apparently have been living a healthy life after your open heart surgery!
It is good to know the no-salt-added canned peas have a decent taste to them. We're not fans of canned peas in general (we go for the frozen variety), but we also try to keep things as healthy as possible. We have two little guys who learn their dietary habits from us, so we have to set a good example!
Fresh peas for me every time... Tinned and frozen peas are awful and full of god knows what !
okay, first of all they are canned! yuck! secondly, they are soft and mushy! So the thirdly thing about no salt is irrelavant. Try frozen with Mrs. Dash.

I'm overwhelmed with dry cat food confusion. I tried my cat on the highest rated canned foods...and she didn't have a bowel movement for four days. I thought she might need a dry food to supplement and help...
