Cargill Launches FlakeSelect

Posted: June 13, 2011

At the IFT Food Expo, Cargill introduced its FlakeSelect products, a portfolio aimed to help food manufacturers reduce sodium in snacks, baked goods and processed foods, or reformulate with sea salt. FlakeSelect uses the company’s patent-pending compacting technology to combine salt and other ingredients. The compacting process applies pressure to the ingredients to create an agglomerated, or clustered, thin flake with properties including uniform consistency, low bulk density, high solubility, and a large surface area. FlakeSelect is available in four formulations and four cut sizes, making it able to be customized.
