January 2012/Prepared Foods-- KaliSel is a high-purity potassium chloride (KCI) of natural origin. It is used as a substitute for sodium chloride (NaCl) in many areas of the food industry. With the KaliSel brand, K+S KALI GmbH offers an excellent solution for salt substitutes in food. KCl is closest to NaCl in terms of its chemistry; like food-grade salt, the raw material of KaliSel, potassium chloride, is of natural origin and is mined. Therefore, production processes are comparable. Different proportions of sodium chloride have been successfully replaced with KaliSel. It has proven possible to reduce the proportion of sodium chloride by up to 40% in certain product groups, without any sensory or physical losses, according to the company.
