Campbell Soup Co. is searching for the "NutraSweet of salt. " Salt enhances the flavors in products - without it they just don't taste the same. But it also can be a health hazard, particularly for the large portion of the population suffering from high-blood pressure. "The problem is that nothing else tastes like salt," said James T. Heimbach, head of the consumer-research staff of the Food and Drug Administration. Added Larry A. Carpenter, senior marketing manager of Campbell's soups division, which uses a lot of salt: "No one has been able to come up with a substitute as good as salt.

In a letter to the editor (July 7), a writer states: "Current estimates of the gay population in the United States range from 20 million to 30 million. " The writer gives no source for the estimates. When sources are not given, one should take the estimates, such as the writer gives, with a big grain of salt. Out of the approximately 240 million population in the United States, approximately 57 million are singles (never marrieds, widows, widowers and divorced people) 18 and older.

Q. I recently took the instructor course for the American Red Cross' "Better Eating for Better Health. " The teacher said that salt heats up the water. When cooking pasta, it says right on the package to add salt at the beginning of cooking time. I had always thought that adding salt was to prevent boiling over. What's the real purpose? - Colette Abell APO, N.Y. A. The purpose of adding salt to pasta water is to enhance the taste of the pasta, which is rather bland without it. Although salt will not prevent boiling over, it is a heat conductor and will shorten the length of time it takes to bring water to a boil.

The East Pikeland Board of Supervisors awarded a $21,694 contract to Robert McComsey Tuesday night for a salt shed to be built to the rear of the township building on Rapps Dam Road. The Department of Environmental Resources now requires that salt be sealed in sheds to prevent it from leaking into the ground and killing plant life, said board President Barbara Appleman. The township has been storing salt for the winter outside in a pile on a platform, she said. In other business, the supervisors: Said they would write to the Genuardi Supermarket in the new Maple Lawn Village Center on Route 113 about neighbors' complaints that noise from the store's trash compactor wakes them up in the middle of the night.

More than 200 Chinese takeout restaurants in the city's poorest neighborhoods - most with kitchens behind bulletproof glass - are participating in a program to reduce the salt in their cooking, according the City Department of Public Health. In an effort to lower high blood pressure, and, in turn, the number of heart attacks and strokes, the health department is partnering with Temple University's Center for Asian Health, the Asian Community Health Coalition, and the Greater Philadelphia Chinese Restaurant Association to encourage some of the city's 400 Chinese takeout restaurants to use less salt.

Dear Polly: I have several recipes calling for salt pork (stews, chowders, etc.), which I cannot find in my local supermarkets. Is there a substitute? - Mrs. D.G. Salt pork comes from the fatty belly of the pig. It is heavily salted (hence its name) and can be kept in the refrigerator for four to six weeks. I usually substitute bacon for salt pork. The bacon contributes a different flavor, since it is smoked and salt pork is not. Personally, I prefer using the bacon to the salt pork since I find the smoky flavor of bacon more attractive and interesting in these dishes, though purists may object.

The squeaky taxpayers get the salt. That's one way the city Streets Department determines where to send salt trucks, after first making sure that major streets are cleared to accommodate heavy traffic and public transportation. "We've had thousands of complaints already and as long as we get complaints, we keep responding," said Kevin Koch, acting chief of highway engineering for the Streets Department. Koch said his office has received a number of calls from residents in northwest Philadelphia who complained that their streets had not been salted.

As everyone knows, too much salt, or not enough, is no good. Salt, the dance by Anne-Marie Mulgrew & Dancers Company, premiered at the Painted Bride over the weekend. Salt, by the tubful and drifting down from the fly, was supposed to be part of the program, but there was too much concept and too little salt - only 100 pounds - not enough for what ought to have been a spectacle. Getting a dance from conception to rehearsal to premiere is no easy task in today's economy, and taking on a big subject on a small dance company's budget is fraught with pitfalls.

This winter may be warmer than usual, or it may have heavier snowfalls. It depends on which El Nino prediction you believe. New Jersey officials are going with the worst-case scenario in making preparations for keeping main roads clear. Officials have 150,000 tons of salt on hand for the state's 10,700 lane-miles of interstate and state highways - close to the maximum 158,000-ton storage capacity, said Dave Brown, New Jersey Department of Transportation spokesman. Salt stocks "have increased significantly in recent years," prompted by the ice storm of March 1994, and the great Blizzard of 1996, Brown said.

There's nothing like home improvement to improve your life. At least, in theory. I say this because I'm adding a garden room to my house, even though I don't know if that's a thing, because I have a garden and I want to see it from a window. Like TV, only with flowers and butterflies. In other words, children's TV. The garden room is attached to the kitchen, and since it needed a door, the oven and cabinets had to be moved, and, in any event, you see where this is going.
