The Salt Monsta
Updated: Feb 28
Hello Future Fit Food Fans,
We are thrilled that it is now soup season across the nation. Halloween and Day of the Dead have now passed, but other monsters still lurk around in our food every day, including one hidden monster lurking in our soups: Salt.
Many of us love salt. Salt is one of the oldest food seasonings and was used for food preservation likely dating back to 6,000 BC. Nations have gone to war over salt. Salt is an essential nutrient to our health, but excessive amounts of salt consumption can increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases like hypertension or high blood pressure that can lead to stroke, heart failure, dementia, blindness, and other diseases. If that isn't scary, what is? Werewolves pale in comparison to these risk factors.
Recently, the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released new guidance for processed, packaged and prepared foods to reduce intake of sodium. The average intake in the US is about 3,400 milligrams per day per adult, with roughly 70 percent coming from packaged and restaurant foods, with soups being some of the worst offenders. FDA guidance currently advises Americans 14 years and older to limit consumption of sodium to 2,300 mg/day, or the equivalent to one teaspoon of table salt.
At Future Fit Foods, we design our foods with your health and our planet's health in mind. We bring you all the flavor with less of the Salt Monsta to your doorstep and we leave it up to you to add salt to your liking, not ours.
We use high-quality organic ingredients and spices that allow your palate to explore flavor without simply throwing in loads of cheap salt to bump flavor at your health's expense as the big food industry has done for years.
On average, your Future Fit Foods are 40% less salt than the leading packaged soup brands.

We are proud of that and hope you feel the same.
