    WHY ARE THEY SO EXPENSIVE? It's just salt. How much more money does it have to cost to either add less or completely remove it from food products ???

    I just want some low sodium or no sodium mustard. Do I really have to buy it from some fancy catalog at a fancy price?

    Probably you do if that's what you need. Some costs are worth the advantageous health benefits.
    I stay away from condiments, ketchup, mustard, relish, because of the high salt content.
    The thing I miss the most are the salad dressings. They are very high sodium and I like a lot!
    Some things are worth the sacrifice. My general health is one of those things that cost doesn't matter if it helps.

    Don't know if this thread is still live but wanted to jump in. This is my first post.

    I understand your frustration regarding condiments. I've spent hours reading labels in many grocery stores.

    While expensive, (think "carefully crafted" not "expensive") I've discovered some interesting mustards:

    1. Mendocino Mustard Hot and Sweet, 0 (zero) mg sodium/teaspoon/5 gms, Fort Bragg, California - popular here in Calif.

    2. Tracklements Wholegrain Mustard, 0.27 mg/teaspoon/5 mg, Wiltshire, England - I got it at Whole Foods as well as a local independent grocery here in Oakland (Piedmont Grocery) - MY FAVORITE ONE

    3. Tracklements English Beer Mustard, 0.27 mg/teaspoon5mg, Wiltshire, England - I got it at Whole Foods

    4. Lowensenf Bavarian Style (Sweet Prepared Bavarian Mustard), 0 mg, product of Germany - but I see it in many stores, maybe even Safeway

    5. Westbrae Natural Stoneground Mustard, 0 mg, New York and Boulder, CO - TOO VINEGARY FOR ME :p - I think I got it at a natural foods grocery - could be used as a base for salad dressing since it already has the mustard and vinegar!

    My aunt used to make mustard. You could try making your own, too. It ain't rocket science!

    Keep trying new foods and tastes. We've crossed a great divide (having MM) and now live a new world. But there IS tasty food in this new world! ;D Keep on trying new stuff and share your discoveries.

    Thanks, Ally!

    I did end up finding a no sodium Dijon mustard. The brand is Temeraire.

    Thanks Ally! I'll look up your thread again next time I'm in the grocery store.
