Eating at St Pierre's on a Low Sodium Diet

While sodium is an essential mineral for a well functioning human body, most of us have too much sodium in our diet! The recommended maximum amount of sodium is 2300 mg per day - about one teaspoon of salt - but it is beneficial if you consume less. To reduce the risk of chronic disease the Ministry of Health suggests no more than 1600 mg sodium per day.

The majority of our sodium intake comes from salt, of which sodium makes up 40% (i.e. 1 g of salt will give you 400 mg of sodium). A diet too high in sodium has been linked to increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, stomach cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, osteoporosis, and water retention/bloating. Those with high blood pressure and/or heart conditions, in particular, may be required to have a low sodium diet.

 

Good choices for those on a low sodium diet:

  • Salmon nigiri* - 244 mg/serve (6 pieces), or 83 mg/100 g
  • Fresh salmon sushi - Jumbo Salmon Double Avo* sushi has 319 mg/serve (8 pieces), or 100 mg/100 g; Jumbo Salmon* sushi has 317 mg/serve, or 104 mg/100 g
  • Vegetarian sushi - Double Avo Vegetarian* sushi has 327 mg/serve (8 pieces), or 112 mg/100 g

* Products classified as 'low in sodium' by Food Standards Australia New Zealand.

 

The following should be used/consumed sparingly!

  • Miso soup
  • Soy sauce
  • Teriyaki sauce

 

Umami and MSG

We all know the basic tastes sweet, sour, salty, and bitter.. but did you know there is a fifth basic taste? It's called umami, otherwise known as 'savoury' or 'meaty'. Borrowed from Japanese, the word umami means 'pleasant savoury taste'.

The active ingredient of MSG (monosodium glutamate) is glutamate or glutamic acid, an amino acid. Glutamate gives food that umami quality, and MSG is commonly added to snack foods to bring out the flavour.

When used as an additive MSG is classed as a flavour enhancer (number 621), but it also occurs naturally in many foods - including meat, tomatoes, mushrooms, cheese, shellfish, soy sauce, and other fermented products. Despite a lot of bad rap, MSG is harmless to the majority of the population and the body cannot distinguish between naturally occurring and synthesised MSG. A small number of people are intolerant to MSG or sensitive to large amounts, however, and should avoid MSG and other glutamates.

 

Eating at St Pierre's if you are intolerant or sensitive to MSG

Exercise caution with respect to the following:

  • Soy sauce, and anything containing soy sauce - e.g. teriyaki sauce, teriyaki chicken
  • Miso soup
  • Tasty tuna sushi
  • Japanese mayonnaise
  • Seaweed salad
  • Crab salad (surimi) and crab nuggets
  • Fish balls

Note that some of the above products contain naturally occurring MSG!

Omega-3 Fats

Long chain Omega-3 fats promote good health and chronic disease prevention. Regular consumption can help prevent heart disease, diabetes, several types of cancer, and is good for brain health!

To get these benefits, it's recommended that you eat 430 mg (women) or 610 mg (men) of long chain Omega-3s each day. Salmon and tuna contain the long chain Omega-3 fats DHA and EPA.

 

Did you know?

- Fresh salmon is one of the best sources of Omega-3s.

- One 8-pack of regular fresh salmon sushi:

  • contains all your daily Omega-3!
  • contains more Omega-3 than one fish oil capsule – with the added bonus of selenium, which is also associated with decreased risk of cancer and heart disease.

- Both fresh and canned tuna contain long chain Omega-3s.

- Shrimps are a low fat source of long chain Omega-3s, and also provide iodine, calcium, selenium and zinc to the diet.
