I've been experimenting with reducing the sodium in bread machine recipes, and I found something that really works! Most bread machine recipes call for 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt. That's 3,540 mg of sodium in a loaf of bread. If you figure 12 slices in a loaf, that's nearly 300 mg per slice. It's insane! I did some research about leavening agents in bread,and I found a way to drastically reduce the sodium, and the bread still turns out great. For a 2 pound loaf, use 1/2 tsp. of salt, 1/2 tsp of No Salt (it's potassium chloride, no sodium), and 1/2 tsp of Vitamin C powder (available at health food stores). Vitamin C powder has the same leavening effect as salt. Total sodium in a big 2 pound loaf is 1,180, less than 100 mg per slice. And the slices are huge, so typically, I cut them in half for a piece of toast. I've tried this with three of the recipes that came with my bread machine, and all three turned out perfect.
