LowSalt

01
Overview

LowSalt is an ingredient that builds upon LowSalt 50% Less sodium. It will be released in 2023 with the same sensory profile as its predecessor: it maintains the same taste as normal salt in partially reduced formulations and has a similar but not exactly the same taste in 100% reduced sodium content formulations. ​ Fooditive has developed a new type of product, LowSalt, which is made by modifying potassium chloride by adding citric acid and mixing it with a carrier to result in an end-product that is spray dried to reach low sodium salt to be twice as salty compared to natural salt. Fooditive is tackling the side-effects of salt and provides a low sodium salt future which is also a greener alternative for the environment. LowSalt should provide taste and preservability in the end-product while protecting the consumer from a rise in blood pressure and weight gain. Fooditive aims to do trials and clinical studies to understand both the impact on our health and the environment.

Why we do it?
Salt is the flavor enhancer we all know and love. But what if you could enjoy its taste without the added salt? That's exactly what's happening with LowSalt, a new ingredient that's set to shake up the market in 2023. LowSalt has been in development for years, as we work to perfect its taste and texture so that it can be used in any application where salt needs to be reduced on a 1:1 basis. It works for every product in the market, including those in the plant-based industry. What makes LowSalt stand out from other reduced-sodium products is its sensory profile—it maintains the same taste as normal salt in partially reduced formulations. When it comes to 100% reduced sodium content, however, the taste is “similar but not exactly the same” as regular salt.
