Potassium Chloride Dominates the Market

Germany dominates the European sodium reduction ingredients market, with its major share in the mineral salts market. The global retail players, such as Nestle and Unilever, are widely incorporating these mineral salts, especially potassium chloride as a salt reducing ingredient. Additionally, these companies are pleading to the regulatory body to allow it to be labeled as potassium salt within the European Union, as it will indicate the consumers the higher potassium level in the product without discouraging the purchase based on low consumer acceptability of the ingredient. This will also cater to the continuous sodium reduction efforts of the European food industry.
