Collaboration looks for alternatives to salt

Wednesday, 06 July, 2016

Many companies are seeking to address the concerns of health professionals and consumers and reduce the salt content of their products. Nestlé has just extended its collaboration with life sciences company Chromocell Corporation in a bid to jointly develop novel ingredients that can be used to create nutritious, tasty foods that contain less salt.

Nestlé is providing funding to Chromocell to utilise its proprietary Chromovert Technology, to identify natural compounds that provide similar or equally pleasing tastes to salt. The continued collaboration builds on the successful identification of numerous compounds that enable sodium reduction. As these compounds move through development towards product launch, the two companies will focus on finding additional natural compounds that enable further sodium reduction across a broad range of products.

Chromocell focuses on the identification and development of novel food and beverage ingredients and therapeutics, using naturally occurring systems that mimic human biology as part of their discovery platform. This approach is particularly suited to innovative research in taste and aroma.
