Innophos Holdings, Inc., Cranbury, N.J., says its subsidiary, AMT Labs, Inc., signed an exclusive license agreement to manufacture, sell and market Smart Salt® low sodium salt substitute products in the Americas.
Innophos already has a strong existing range of sodium reduction products with excellent binding qualities and fast and complete solubility, including Cal-Rise®, a unique, slow acting, calcium-based chemical leavening agent specifically designed to reduce overall sodium content in baked goods; and Curavis® So-lo 93, a sodium reduction product for processed meat and poultry.
Officials say Smart Salt’s range of salt substitute products further enhance Innophos’ ability to provide reduced sodium solutions for baked goods as well as meat, seafood, poultry, dairy and beverage products.
"With Smart-Salt, we are adding to our full range of solutions for food and beverage producers to economically reduce sodium content without affecting the consumer's perception of taste,” says Valerie Coyne, Innophos business manager for leavening products. “A unique co-crystal primarily of magnesium in balance with potassium, Smart Salt represents a proven functional and nutritional solution for sodium reduction. We are excited about the possibilities that the addition of the salt substitutes will provide us as we help food companies in their sodium reduction efforts."
