there is less sodium, so why should it cost more? Buying less of something should cost less, right?

Because it is considered a specialty item.

Thank you for your input, you're probably right, it's a specialty item.

Still, to that concept I say:

Specialty, smecialty. Salt is ADDED to the other one, so THAT option should cost more. Why punish people for being healthy by charging more for buying less?

There is less demand for it, so it sits on the shelf longer. Not as profitable, hence the price is higher.

I've noticed the same with most canned veggies, with the low salt or no salt version getting a big 'healthy' label. On those rare occasions where I buy a can of veggies, it really irks me to pay more.

If you want it to taste good you're gonna have to add something (herbs, spices, more veggies) to replace the missing sodium.
