KaliSeL: More Balanced Mineral Nutrition

There are health benefits to having more potassium in the diet. Research suggests that potassium may help contribute to reduced blood pressure, a strong heart and strong muscle function.1,2 In fact, the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans advise adults to consume 4,700 mg potassium/day, though many adults fail to do so.3 The Guidelines also suggest a reduction in sodium intake, and a most suitable replacement – which happens to be one of the most functional and cost-effective strategies for reducing sodium – is to substitute potassium chloride for part of the salt in the formula. Potassium chloride (KCl) contains 52.4% potassium, making it a concentrated source of this essential mineral and a convenient way for Americans to both lower the sodium and increase the potassium in their diet.

KaliSel KCl is a versatile ingredient that can be used in the production of a variety of foods such as meats, soups, sauces, snacks, dairy, prepared meals, sides, bread and baked goods. Other features and benefits of KaliSel KCl include:

  • Meets Food Chemicals Codex (FCC)
  • Can be used to replace up to 33% NaCl in many processed foods without affecting consumer appeal
  • Available with a choice of two anticaking agents

The KaliSel KCl product line is only one part of Morton’s extensive offering of potassium chloride based technologies. Morton also offers Morton Lite Salt® Mixture, a 50/50 blend of salt and potassium chloride.
