Engineered using a patented process that reduces particle sizes from 200-500 microns to under 2 microns, MicroSalt has the consistency of powder (but doesn’t clump together as long as it remains dry) and can help snack manufacturers slash sodium by 50% and retain their clean labels because it is listed simply as ‘salt’ on the ingredients list, says CEO Victor Hugo Manzanilla.
The tiny MicroSalt particles, which deliver a disproportionately salty taste for their size by maximizing surface area relative to volume, are ideal for dry-surface topical applications such as chips, nuts, and popcorn.
