    Hi refractordode, nFa, Voyageur and all. I got a great kick out of the "organic" salt, "gluten-free", and "nonGMO" comments of an inorganic compound. Now, history tells us that our blood salts match the ocean salt percentages, but the oceans have had millions of years to dissolve more salt from ocean rocks. When whole blood plasma is not available, a patient is given a saline solution. In the military and sports, salt tablets used to be dispensed to help in perspiration. Now, don't get me wrong on here, as modern studies have shown that a high salt content can lead to hypertension, water retention, and high blood pressure. With all of the medical problems that my wife and I have had in the last few years, high blood pressure is not one of them. However, we only use Kosher salt in our cooking, and even here we have cut down to be on the safe side.
    The best advice on this thread is to get a complete physical checkup from your own doctor.
    Too much of anything is not good....or it would not be described as too much.
    Next, we talk about sugar overuse. I now see honey ham, honey turkey, honey mustard, and chocolate pretzels. I don't know if nFA grills outside, but I saw a BBQ sauce; "Now with brown sugar, molassis and honey." What are we grilling here, BBQ'd candy?"
    Excessive sugar can lead to obesity and possible heart problems. We have cut our sugar intake down to an absolute minimum. Also, we follow a sensible diet recommended years ago, with less red meat, more white meat, more vegetables, and sugar only from fruits (fructose). Today, this concept is lost on the current drivel on the Internet. This common sense diet has helped us the last few years, and without subscribing to outside sources trying to "sell" some nonsense. I hope that my post contributes something to this thread folks, and kindest of regards.

    Makuser... As to my outdoor grilling exploits, they are mostly in the past. These days I only do it once or twice a year for special holiday events as folks require.

    Hi nFA. This wasn't meant to be a bash against you, but a comparison of the product labels. At the current prices for chicken, turkey, and rib eye steaks, I want to taste the meat, and not sugar, although, I do like the baby back ribs with a little sweetness. Thanks nFA, and the kindest of regards.

    I didn't take it as a bash at all. And I agree that bbq candy isn't a style to be emulated. I prefer savory to sweet treatments.

    And how to decide whether it's too much or not?
    Twice that Gabby said, your doctor is your friend, not the almighty google. Your body needs both sodium and chloride ions to function properly. However, it is easy to satisfy those needs, but excess salt can lead to problems - we all have our limits and that's why you should see your dietician in the first place.
