Dietz & Watson
Dietz & Watson, a provider of deli meats to supermarkets, makes a No Salt Added Turkey Breast. According to their Web site, the sodium count is 55 mg per 2 oz. serving. I actually found it in a Shop Rite supermarket (a chain here in the Northeast).
In a health food store in Tampa, FL a customer found Ham from Nature's Harvest Market (813-873-7428). She could not remember the exact sodium content, but thought it was around 50 mg per serving.
Stephanie from IL sent me the following note:
Sounds to good to be true but start hunting. HAM! I think the brand is "Virginia Brand." I found it at the deli at Whole Foods. You can get it either custom-sliced or prepackaged in 8 oz packages. 25 mg sodium per OUNCE - so 75 mg per 3 oz. which beats the 900 + mg per 3 oz serving for "regular" hams. It is expensive, but for those occasional times you need a little ham taste, it is indispensible! Thanks Stephanie!
The only place I have found that makes low sodium bread in Minneapolis is the upscale grocery store in town, Byerly's. I can get a few different types, including egg bread. Take a look around your town and read the labels, maybe you can get lucky. If not, here are a couple of alternatives.
Rich from New Jersey tuned me into a no salt added pita bead. He especially likes the whole wheat variety. They don't take credit cards only cash or check but they are willing to do business via snail mail. They are located in North Bergen N.J. Telephone number 201-861-4131. Thanks Rich

And here is a tip from Bill in AZ!
For folks living in the southwestern part of the country [I live in AZ], there is a large grocery store chain called FRY'S. This chain has an in store bakery and they sell a sodium free white bread that is very good. It is less than 5mgs of sodium per slice. The only bad part of it is that it tends to go bad pretty quick because of no salt to help preserve it. I take the bread out of the plastic loaf and put it 2 slices per small freezer baggie and keep it frozen until near time to use it. Or, it can be thawed in about 30 seconds in the microwave.
A customer has found white bread and whole wheat bread at The Giant Store in Hunt Valley, in the Baltimore area. It is their store brand No Salt Added bread and has only 10 mg. of sodium per slice. My husband, who is the CHF patient, thinks it tastes fine. I don't know if it is available anywhere else, but there are Giant Stores in the Baltimore and Washington areas. Another customer found a low sodium pita bread from the Garden of Good Eatin' - 30 mgs per pita. These are very good and can be frozen. The bread does need to be kept in the fridge, but it is very good when heated up.
At Safeway Stores they have a brand called Mrs. Wright's low sodium bread with 5mg. Sodium per slice. The UPC number is 21130-18069.
I found a great low-sodium Turkey Breast at Whole Foods in Winston-Salem, NC. This tip is from our customer Jim K., N.C. Thanks Jim.
