Eckrich® has introduced Lower Sodium Smoked Sausage, a unique product delivering 33 percent less sodium as compared to USDA data for smoked sausage. Eckrich uses a breakthrough, all-natural sodium alternative, which tastes and functions just like salt without delivering the same sodium levels. The new offering is the latest item launched as part of an initiative to offer lower-sodium alternatives by parent company John Morrell Food Group, a subsidiary of Smithfield Foods. Lower Sodium Smoked Sausage comes in 13-ounce packages and can be found alongside other Eckrich smoked sausage offerings and at similar pricing. www.eckrich.com
