Salt (sodium chloride) is an inexpensive but versatile ingredient. Its ability to balance and expose rich flavors makes salt the most widely used ingredient to enhance flavor. However, excessive salt consumption has been linked to serious health problems, including hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. These negative effects are receiving more awareness and attention from consumers, which leads to a trend of salt replacement or reduction.
Salt reduction in food is challenging because salt plays many roles in foods (e.g., structure, water activity, safety) and is considered a “must have” attribute by consumers. Several salt replacements have been proposed, such as Monosodium glutamate (MSG), other halide salts (KCl, MgCl2), herbs and vegetables rich in sodium, seaweed, etc., yet none has appeared to be viable since they could upset the flavor profiles.
Confronting this challenge, Bluetech Ingredients Ltd. has developed the Taste Enhancer for Salted Reduction which can be used in snacks, noodles, cookies, etc. Our solution can provide functional and flavor benefits to your products beyond just salt replacement. This Taste enhancer is a great promise for your food formulations.
