The Scoular Co. is marketing a new ingredient called Smart Salt that reduces sodium and offers a healthy source of magnesium. The ingredient is considered to be a good source of magnesium, offering the balance of minerals that are necessary for proper metabolism. Scoular’s ingredient reduces the sodium in foods up to 60% without compromising the functionalities of salt, including taste, texture, and preservation.
Deborah A. Rolf, executive vp Americas, said, “USDA researchers have found that over half of all Americans are not getting enough magnesium in their diets. This is an important finding, since nutritional magnesium is needed by everyone not only for good energy and strong muscles, but also to properly metabolize (utilize) salt and its sodium. This is especially important in our sodium dominant environment.”
Smart Salt, based on magnesal, is a patented technology for a co-crystal that is primarily based on magnesium. With the common name of magnesal, this innovative sodium alternative provides an unsurpassed level of taste enhancement and functionality that allows flexibility and perfect optimization, with reformulation, in a multitude of applications.
