    Hello (Konnichiwa),
    Is there a low sodium broth or what is the lowest sodium broth I can be using?
    Thank you.

      Konnnichiwa, thank you for the comment!
      Yes, many Japanese dashi broth mixes, including Ajinomoto Hondashi, are also available in low and no sodium versions.
      “低塩 (Tei-En)” or “減塩 (Gen-En)” stands for “low sodium” versions, while “無塩 (Mu-En)” means containing no salt in the dashi broth. If you search for “低塩出汁” or “無塩出汁” on Amazon Japan, many results pop up! But I don’t know if they are available outside of Japan…
