Salona® Sea Salt Supplier

Salona® low sodium sea salt is a natural mineral that is an effective ingredient for the replacement of salt in food and beverage products. Salt is a critical ingredient used in most food products for flavor enhancement, preservation, and other functions. The need to reduce our sodium intake has created a need for innovative ingredients to be used in reduced sodium products. Salona low sodium sea salt is a natural sea salt from ICL Food Specialties. It allows for a 25 to 50% replacement of sodium chloride and 100% potassium chloride. Salona is designed to assist manufacturers in meeting consumers’ nutritional, dietary, and taste demands. Salona has an extremely low level of Sodum that allows for sodium replacement while maintaining key functions and properties.
