    A quick search resulted in the following...perhaps it will help?

    Low Sodium Tomato Juice

    Edit: If you're after tomato juice as a beverage, these might help.

    Granted, nothing beats Campbell's for convenience. ;)

    I have low-sodium tomato paste here! Thanks!

    I don't drink much tomato juice (although I do like the low-sodium V-8). I'm interested in keeping the sodium content of gazpacho down to a minimum.

    Some food markets carry it and some do not.

    Publix carries it. Kroger does not where I shop. Fresh Market is too small and I have not looked at Whole Paycheck.
    How about Harris Teeter or Pigley Wigley in your area?

    To spice it up, add lemon or lime juice. You never miss the salt.

    To my knowledge all SC Harris Teeter Stores went out of business.

    I hear that Piggly Wiggly and Harris Teeter will soon merge.

    The name of the new stores will be changed to...























    ...are you ready?...























    Wiggly Teeters! :banana: :animlol: :rofl: :tongueout: :supergrin: :wavey: :thumbsup:

    OK, Wally World carries Campbell's low sodium tomato juice. A 2 quart bottle is $2.46.

    In contrast, a 6 oz. can of Del Monte "no salt added" tomato paste is $.46

    Given I only need 2 cups of tomato juice I bought the can of paste.

    I can't buy tomato juice nor V8 because I will inhale the whole half gallon in less than an hour! :shocked:

    I was in Big! Lots this afternoon and was almost tempted to buy a large can of generic tomato juice or vegetable juice cocktail. Price on either was a buck.

    The sodium content on a single serving (probably 6 oz.) drove me away:

    Tomato Juice: 750mg
    "V-8" Juice: 650mg

    :shocked:

    That's too damn high.

    I do the same exact thing, and have since moved onto Mr. and Mrs. T's Bloody Mary mix mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    I always drink it when I fly Delta, and a few months ago I put 2 and 2 together and realized that they sold the stuff in the stores. BTW Harris Teeter is still here in Newport news, VA

    Has anyone tried "Red Gold" brand? I find it to taste more like fresh tomatoes than any brand. It is sometimes hard to find.

    no help here on the tomato juice, but a great source for LOW/ NO SODIUM recipies and info in general is my friend Chrisite's website:

    BTW, she loves it when she gets a lot of hits from GT.
