Decades worth of attempts to reduce sodium by arbitrarily cutting salt levels has shown this is a poor strategy and does not result in an acceptable product. It is often an unacceptably bland taste and a significant loss in other qualities such as shelf-life, flavor stability, texture and moisture retention. At Morton Salt, we will not accept this as a solution, and we know consumers will not be satisfied.
However, we do believe gradual change can be met with success when well-executed. At Morton Salt, we understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to lowering sodium levels. The functional, processing, preservation and sensory requirements of each application require a tailored, integrated approach. To that end, we have developed a number of sodium-reduction solutions for our food processing customers who are looking to provide consumers with options.
At the heart of our technology, we offer a variety of sodium-reduction products including:
- KaliSel Potassium Chloride (“KCl”)
- Morton® Lite Salt™ Mixture: A 50/50 blend of sodium chloride and potassium chloride
- A variety of salt particle sizes and bulk densities
When you work with Morton Salt, you will benefit from the investment we have made in arming our quality and technical sales teams with on-the-ground understanding of how salt works and how it affects your formula. And with the backing of our R&D, analytical capabilities and access to leading testing labs and resources (including our new state-of-the-art food lab dedicated to exploring the next generation of reduced sodium solutions), Morton is ready to help you tackle any challenge.
