A few days ago, we got an email from a woman named Diane. She said that her boss, a leading cardiologist in Boston, was "flipping out" after eating Bacon Salt. The supreme irony here is that this is a cardiologist who regularly uses the saying "there is never enough bacon." It made us wonder how many other cardiologists are secret bacon lovers.
This is a good time to remind our dear readers that bacon, while delicious, contains 2,000 mg of sodium per pound, a whole lot of saturated fat, nitrates and lots of other no-no's in the cardiology world. Like most recreational substances, it should be used in moderation. Bacon Salt, in contrast, is actually low sodium (less than 140 mg per serving, which is 75% less sodium than table salt).
So after some back and forth with the good doctor, we now have our first cardiologist stamp of approval. As word spreads in the cardiology community, we expect many more.
Without further ado, the testimonial:
As a cardiologist, being seen eating bacon in the hospital cafeteria does not set a good example. With Bacon Salt, I can have my bacon taste in a heart healthy manner. No fat, carbs and fairly low sodium. A taste treat for a cardiac prudent diet! My patients are going to go crazy when they get this! Thumbs up to you.
