Magnesium is the new sodium
Wednesday 21 July 2010
Smart Salt, a mineral-based salt alternative, reduces up to 60 percent of sodium in foods.
"Smart Salt, based on magnesal, is a patented technology for a co-crystal that is primarily based on magnesium - a desirable mineral often deficient in our diets," said Deborah Rolf, Executive Vice President, Americas-Smart Salt, Inc. at the 2010 Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Annual Meeting & Food Expo (IFT10) on July 19.
"With the common name of magnesal, this innovative sodium alternative provides an unsurpassed level of taste enhancement."
Smart Salt is described as being appropriate for seasoning and baking just like salt without sacrificing taste and also adding "10% of your daily recommended values of potassium and magnesium."
Expect to find Smart Salt on shelves and highlighted in various products and heart-healthy menus in the coming months, for more information, go to: http://www.smartsalt.com
