New Bread Book Due March 1, 2003

St. Martin's Press: December, 2002

Donald Gazzaniga's latest effort at lowering salt and sodium intake will appear on book shelves March 1, 2003. Titled

"The No Salt, Lowest Sodium Baking Book," the latest in his series of heart-health books contains 135 bread, cookie and muffin recipes.

"Everything from cinnamon rolls to chocolate chip cookies," the author claims.

Like The No Salt, Lowest Sodium Cookbook, the baking book is the only book of its kind in the world. "No ingredient in the book contains salt and neither do any of the recipes. Sodium levels for each ingredient are listed with a total per serving intake of all nutrients listed at the end of each recipe. The books are designed for those who need to cut their salt and sodium including heart patients, Meniere's syndrome patients, kidney, liver patients and those with hypertension. Sodium levels for bread slices are down as low as 3 mg sodium per slice. A whole cinnamon bun will contain only 14 mg of sodium while standard commercials buns can contain as many as 800 mg."

The book has recipes for every need from sandwiches to entertaining guests. Dinner rolls, breakfast rolls and sandwich buns are all a part of the book. "Even bagels and donuts are in the book," author Gazzaniga states.

The No Salt, Lowest Sodium Cookbook has been such a hit with those who need to cut salt and sodium that Gazzaniga will continue to pursue his series by launching yet another book in 2004. "Soups, salads and sandwiches will be the subject of the next book," he says.

"Soups are the most difficult to make and to hold flavor. But it can be done and with a complete variety, too."

The new baking book is from St. Martin's Press and will be available at all bookstores and online through the website.
