Can you recommend the best tasting salt substitute?

I’ve been using a salt substitute, but it leaves a bitter aftertaste in my mouth. Can you recommend the best tasting salt substitute?

Salt substitutes usually contain potassium chloride instead of sodium chloride as found in salt. The salt substitute makes you produce saliva much in the same way salt does. However, the potassium does leave a bitter aftertaste like saccharin. An alternative “seasoning shaker” can be made at home. Why don’t you try the following recipe?

Seasoning Shaker

1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

1 TBSP garlic powder

1 tsp. basil, ground

1 tsp. marjoram, ground

1 tsp. thyme, ground

1 tsp. parsley

1 tsp. savory

1 tsp. mace

1 tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. sage

Combine all seasonings in a salt shaker with large holes. Use the shaker in cooking or at the table to season food to taste.

A word of caution though for persons with ulcers or colitis, cayenne pepper, and black pepper should be omitted since they can cause an excess secretion of acid in the stomach.
