Market Overview

The Spanish sodium reduction ingredient market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period (2020 - 2025).

  • Excessive intake of sodium leads to several adverse health effects, hypertension being foremost among them. Alleviating these conditions, to some extent, has been possible through the use of SRI, such as mineral salts, amino acids, and yeast extracts. Versatility in its application has provided the requisite impetus to these health-promoting products.
  • The expected growth is likely to be at a rapid pace, due to the shifting preference of manufacturers toward natural and flavorful ingredients. Yeast extracts are likely to register the fastest growth in consumption, though the demand for mineral salts, such as SRI, is anticipated to account for the largest share.

Key Market Trends

The Prevalence of Processed Food Consumption

Spanish people have an estimated salt consumption of around 9.7 g per day, where 70-75% of this salt intake comes from processed foods and food eaten outside the home. The main source is bread, which accounts for 19% of daily salt intake, followed by cured ham and cold meats. Food habits and consumption in Spain have experienced a significant change in recent years, leading to a less varied food choice and a tendency toward an increasingly “westernized” diet. This has led to the demand for processed foods at large, and the propensity to reduce the salt intake through SRI inputs across processed food is anticipated to act as a concrete driver in reducing salt consumption among Spaniards.

The Changing Prevalence of Salt Consumption

The country has witnessed a stagnant or declining rate of salt consumption following government regulations that minimize salt consumption. Consumers are generally aware that excess salt intake increases blood pressure figures in adults, with the resulting risk of hypertension and cardiovascular disease. This awareness has led to an increasing replacement rate for sodium reduction ingredients across most of the food items. Food items that are consumed by children, specifically, cured meats that contribute the most salt to children’s diets, including ham, followed by bread, pizza, ready meals, stock cubes, and sausages, are more likely to have a strong penetration of SRI.
