Salt reducerIndustry judges honored Tate & Lyle’s new salt-reduction ingredient, SODA-LO Salt Microspheres, as the “Heart Health and Circulatory Innovation of the Year” and as the overall “Most Innovative Health Ingredient of the Year,”  during the NuW Excellence Awards at Health Ingredients Europe. The NuW Excellence Awards jury panel consisted of nine leaders in the finished foods, beverages and ingredients industry. Judges evaluated nearly 40 global entries.  SODA-LO Salt Microspheres reduce salt levels by 25-50% in various applications, including baked goods and salty snacks. SODA-LO Salt Microspheres use a patent-pending technology that turns standard salt crystals into free-flowing crystalline microspheres. These smaller, lower-density crystals efficiently deliver salty taste by maximizing surface area relative to volume.
