Salt Reduction

Salt reduction without compromising on taste.

Salt reduction

There is considerable pressure on food manufacturers to reduce the level of salt (sodium chloride) in foods since excess salt intake is linked to increased blood pressure, and a greater risk of heart disease and stroke. Simply reducing the levels of salt in foods has a negative impact on our perception as it strongly contributes to the overall taste, as well as savoury flavours. With OHLY® FLAV-R-MAX and PROVESTA® 512, Ohly offers salt reduction of up to 50% without compromising on the taste and flavour richness in a wide range of applications, such as soups, sauces, snacks, condiments or meat based foods.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that adults consume less than 5g (just under a teaspoon) of salt per day and Member States have agreed to reduce the global population’s intake of salt by a relative 30% by 2025 (www.WHO.int). Products known to be high in salt are sauces and dressings, cured meat and fish, instant soups, seasonings, ready meals and bread.
