Nu-Tek Products Introduces No Sodium Salt
Nu-Tek Products has developed a technology to enhance Potassium Chloride to make it taste more like sodium chloride (table salt). They have developed this technology to help food formulators reduce sodium intake in various food products. This has always been challenging for the food developers because of the bitter aspects of potassium chloride. This new product has minimal bitter or metallic flavor notes.
Nu-Tek Potassium Chloride does not perform the same sodium chloride (table salt) in many food applications because it’s strong ionic strength. Nu-Tek Potassium Chloride is similar to sodium chloride but is weaker in ionic strength. Nu-Tek has found that the Nu-Tek potassium chloride when used in combination with salt at a 50/50 ratio, the food developer will have the same if not better ionic performance in the food application. This product will help the food developer reduce sodium and achieve the same functionality and flavor as salt.
