This Secret Ingredient Is the Best Salt Substitute

Popcorn, pineapplessalad…OK, everything tastes better with a sprinkling of salt. But sadly, it’s not great for you in large quantities. (Thanks, sodium.) But we still want that salty flavor, you know?

The solution: dulse, an edible seaweed that, when ground down into flakes (which you can buy in lots of stores and on Amazon), adds a similarly salty quality to the aforementioned foods.

Unlike salt, however, it’s not jam-packed with sodium. Compared with salt’s 2,300 milligrams of sodium per teaspoon, dulse has just 15 milligrams. On top of that, it’s a great source of fiber, protein, iodine and antioxidants.

Not only is it the best salt substitute, but it's also a french-fry game changer if we’ve ever seen one.
