      wondered why always felt thirsty after drinking tomato juice or tomato juice cocktail/vegetable. in the commercial stuff large amounts of salt (NaCl) are added. remember sea salt is 98+% NaCl.
      i make mine from canned tomato paste (not sauce) with no added salt. ingredient label should list only tomatoes or tomato pulp. a 6oz can has 100mg of NaCl and a potassium to sodium ratio typically 20:1, all from the tomato itself. mix with water and makes about 1 quart of juice. i suggest mix the water slowly into the paste in a large measuring cup for ease in subsequent pouring into a narrow mouth bottle. for a little extra zing add a vitamin c tablet. if safeway brand is used the typical cost $0.79/quart. freund s'g'gw'd c't
