Sodium reduction

More taste, less salt

Finding a substitute for salt that tastes good continues to be a defining challenge for our customers. This is why we created the Salt Reduction Toolbox to help you cut back on salt in your savory products by up to 50% - with zero per cent compromise on taste.

Sodium reduction toolbox

The sodium reduction toolbox is an original blend of 100% natural yeast extracts and process flavors that help you build unique and specific tastes suitable for every recipe.

The various ‘tools’ in the toolbox can be used independently or combined in five easy steps (depending on the product and reduction target). All are natural, Kosher and Halal certified, and allergen free.

The result: Enhanced saltiness and deep umami for a homemade meat or vegetable flavor delivering the taste and texture that consumers expect – and all while reducing salt significantly. In fact, consumer studies have revealed a preference for the flavor of the low-salt recipes containing our ingredients compared to the high salt versions.
