THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION RECOMMENDS MAXIMUM 1500 MG OF SODIUM PER DAY. SAYS THAT 97% OF AMERICAN CHILDREN AND ADULTS EAT TOO MUCH SODIUM.
Back to my Experiment.
Fact One: Kikkoman's Ponzu sauce has 400 grams of sodium per TBSP.
Fact Two: Dr. told me to lower sodium intake so I experimented this morning.
Fact Three: Tried this recipe first using Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce rather than regular soy sauce from Food.com
Misleading: Makes 10.1947 oz not 1 cup. Says on the recipe that would be 5555 grams of sodium per 10 oz. which would translate to 555 grams of sodium (use regular soy sauce and not less sodium). So if you use 3 TBSP which is what I use that would be 1667 grams of sodium per serving. I made the recipe with less sodium soy sauce and 3 TBSP would be 904.4 grams of sodium saving 295.6 grams of sodium.
Kikkoman's Ponzu sauce is 1200 grams of sodium for 3 TBSP.
Fact Four: Tried this recipe second with Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce from MyRecipes.com
Fact Five: This recipe already used Less Sodium Soy Sauce so I didn't change anything!! 801 grams of sodium per three TBSP. Saving 399 grams of sodium.
THE WINNER (for me) IS MY RECIPES RECIPE WITH SAVING SODIUM AND IT TASTES MUCH MORE LIKE THE KIKKOMAN WITH LESS SODIUM (not overpowering sodium taste if that is the taste you want). There are hundreds of ponzu recipes out there. This one is easy. To do more authentic you need food items purchased in an oriental shop.
