Sensient Bio-Ingredients, a unit of Sensient Flavors & Fragrances Group and a part of Sensient Technologies Corp., has created a product line which offers sodium reduction capabilities.
The Sensasalt product line creates specific formulations for a wide range of savory products. This line of yeast extracts, the company said, can deliver up to a 50% sodium reduction without compromising the taste or functional integrity of the finished product.
The Sensasalt product line includes Cheese, Dairy, Beef, Poultry, Vegetable and Baking, with solutions for applications for dips and dressings, soups, sauces and gravies, breads and doughs and salty snacks.
"We recognize the challenge food processors face in achieving sodium reduction while maintaining consumer acceptability,” said Sonal Sanghani, director of research and development for Sensient Bio-Ingredients. “Our goal was to develop customized solutions for sodium reduction that enhance flavor while masking off notes normally associated with traditional alternatives,” he added.
