Key Market Trends

Rising Awareness Toward Heath Effects of High Sodium Intake

The higher salt or sodium consumption in Mexico has been a major concern among local consumers, for it has contributed to several health-related deaths in the country, including stroke, heart failure, osteoporosis, stomach cancer, and kidney disease. According to the statistics by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI), the most common death in the country was due to heart conditions, accounting for 171.87 thousand deaths in 2020. As a result, the government of the nation and other organizations are taking distinct initiatives to regulate the consumption of sodium in the country. Accordingly, in recent years, consumer awareness regarding the ill effects of higher sodium intake has increased, thereby insisting they widely incline toward low-sodium products in order to control hypertension rates and maintaining normal blood pressure.

Mineral Salts Accounted for the Largest Share

Mineral salts are the most consumed form of sodium reduction ingredient among consumers across the country as it contains potassium chloride, which offers flavor without increasing daily sodium intake as a substitute of salt, along with being a healthy alternative to salt. Compared to its counterparts, its low cost makes it a more preferred choice among all the sodium reduction ingredients. Therefore, the demand for mineral salts in the food and beverage industries, such as bakery and dairy, has increased extensively. Companies like Cargill are leading mineral salt suppliers to the food processing industry in the Mexican marketplace. The company offers the broadest lines of mineral salt products available, including potassium salts such as Potassium Pro Potassium Chloride and Potassium Pro Ultra Fine Potassium Chloride.
