Global reduced salt packaged food market: Growing use of salt and sodium substitutes
Sodium has many uses as a food ingredient such as curing meat, preserving food, enhancing flavors, retaining moisture etc. Hence, sodium is an important ingredient in packaged foods. Some common food additives such as sodium bicarbonate, monosodium glutamate, sodium nitrite and sodium benzoate are sources of sodium and contribute to the overall sodium intake of consumers. Therefore, consumers are conscious about compromising on the taste and quality of dishes. Many vendors are implementing salt reduction by scientifically reformulating products and using salt substitutes such as potassium salt.
“Vendors are trying to replace or restrict the use of salt by using more herbs and spices. They are also experimenting with salt substitutes such as potassium salt which occurs naturally in milk, fruits, vegetables, and grains. Moreover, dietary guidelines encourage the increased use of potassium salt, which is leading to its increased use as a salt substitute, ” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on food.
