Industry innovation on show: Sodium reduction at IFT
Food manufacturers continue to seek ways to cut sodium without sacrificing flavor - and ingredients companies continue to find innovative solutions. Caroline Scott-Thomas tracked down some interesting offerings at IFT.

Sodium reduction strategies are still top of mind for most major food manufacturers - but there's not a one-size-fits-all solution.

Among numerous options for sodium reduction being showcased at the recent IFT expo in New Orleans, FoodNavigator-USA spoke to the US Dairy Export Council​ about a whey permeate ingredient; Innophos​ about its calcium-based leavening phosphate for leavened baked goods; Mizkan Americas​ about its flavor-boosting vinegar; Kikkoman​ about soy sauce that doesn't taste like soy sauce; and Spicetec Flavors & Seasoning ​about using a combination of different solutions.

The dangers and effects of too much Sodium have been argued about for over 25 years- the answer is still being debated, but the truth is we are probably getting too much of sodium in our diets. However, Mother Nature gave us a solution in the flavorful, crunch of NATURAL UNREFINED SEA SALT with all of its vital minerals in tact that work WITH the sodium present in sea salt to HELP maintain our health and heart function, cognitive thinking and many other subtle yet critical chemical functions in our bodies. NATURAL SEA SALT needs to be included in these studies as it is a totally different animal than the adulterated, chemically treated, mineral striped salts in all of our food today. No wonder we are fat and sick! More and more docs are recommending natural sea salt to their patients for a reason- sea salt has the same minerals in the same proportions as amniotic fluid and as are found in our blood! Tibetan Rose is a beautiful, natural sea salt that can be used for everything you cook- and it's good for you!
