Key Market Trends

Increased Utilization of Mineral Salts as Sodium Reduction Ingredients

Mineral salts, such as potassium chloride, magnesium sulphate, calcium chloride, potassium lactate, and so on, are widely used as SRIs, owing to their widespread availability and potential to replace normal salt in terms of functionalities and taste. Potassium chloride (KCL) is the most preferred SRI amongst mineral salts due to its similar taste profile as that of salt (NaCl). Additionally, KCL is used in combination with calcium and magnesium-based salts, as they impart bitter taste when they are used individually. Snacks, bakery, and meat are the major applications for mineral salts. The reduction of sodium through mineral salts approach is cost-effective as well as a feasible solution. H
