Chris, do you remember (this is why its in there - the V8 Thing) when I thought I had found the solution for the brethren "salt sensitive - high blood pressure" over the V8 problem. I told everyone to simply mix it half anf half with tomato sauce and it seemed to cut down the salt.
Then, not sure I think it was Ron L, who diplomatically noted that the sauce actually had MORE salt than V8! LOL I felt so bad... I was lucky I didn't send anyone, including myself, to the ER.
Anyway, thats why he is downing the "sauce" that way.
