A Perfect Pairing
When Chef Duane Sunwold called to discuss delicious spice blends to help those affected by kidney disease stay on their diets, we accepted the challenge. As a Kidney disease survivor and trusted advisor to the National Kidney Foundation, Chef Duane knows the impact diet can have on reducing the effects of this disease.
Approximately 37 million adults in the U.S. are affected by kidney disease, but 90% are not aware they even have it. NKF works tirelessly to educate and support healthcare professionals, patients and the public on this silent disease that affects so many. As many of you know, diet and nutrition can play an important role in managing disease progression. Yet while some patients may feel that making the necessary dietary modifications, including restrictions on sodium, potassium and phosphorus means sacrificing flavor, seasoning foods with herbs and spices provide a great alternative.
We’re excited to share that we’ve partnered with the National Kidney Foundation to develop thirteen no salt seasonings that pass the flavor and health test – and we’ve included phosphorus levels on the packaging, which very few other food brands do.
