We currently have a product which meets all the criteria for a "low sodium" claim and we do put this on the front of our packaging. However, this product belongs to a product category that is typically high sodium and as a result our product is generally considered to not have enough flavor. We are considering putting a statement as part of the cooking directions such as:
"Optional: for increased flavor add 1/2 tsp of salt" or something along those lines. Since we would be wording it as something that is "Optional" would this be misleading to our customers? Does anyone know whether if we use the "low sodium" claim can we not put a suggestion like this on the packaging that would make the product no longer low sodium? Any help on this would be appreciated!
