Helpful hints

  • Soy-Less Sodium Sauce keeps for up to 1 month refrigerated.
  • Erin prefers Spice Islands® onion powder. Avoid onion salt.
  • Molasses varies in potassium content. The lowest is light molasses (180 mg per tablespoon); then dark molasses (210 mg/tablespoon); blackstrap molasses is very high in potassium (450 mg /tablespoon—not recommended.) Molasses is made from extracted and boiled sugarcane or beet sugar juice.
  • Use vinegar of choice. Look for unseasoned rice vinegar as one option.

Soy-Less Sodium Sauce
CharlieAnn says:

Could I substitute a pinch of garlic powder for the garlic.\ Dietitian Comment: This recipe was note tested with garlic powder, but you can add in the powder instead of infusing the sauce with the garlic. Recommend starting with a small amount and adjusting to your tasted preference.

This sounds promising. My husband really misses soy sauce. What type of vinegar would be best? I have 8 different kinds. :) Thanks!

What would a trade out of dark brown sugar for the molasses do for the phosphorus content? Dietitian comment: Phosphorus decreases to 2 mg and potassium decreases to 11 mg.
