Cargill adds potassium chloride production to help food manufacturers reduce sodium in their products

17.01.2018 12:00 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) To meet increasing consumer demand for lower sodium food options, Cargill has opened its first food-grade potassium chloride operation at its Watkins Glen, N.Y. salt plant. The new potassium chloride facility is part of Cargills commitment to a robust nutrition innovation pipeline, helping the company bring new lower sodium options to the market faster. Potassium chloride enables food manufacturers to lower sodium content by up to 50 percent in a wide range of food products.

«Many consumers are looking to lower their sodium consumption. As a result, our customers are asking for more reduced-sodium options. By expanding our potassium chloride manufacturing capabilities, we increase the availability of lower sodium foods without sacrificing taste and functionality,» said Marcelo Montero, president, Cargills salt group.

«Sodium is a necessary nutrient, helping the body control blood pressure and blood volume and contributing to muscle and nerve health,» said Janice Johnson, PhD, Cargill technical service leader. «Potassium chloride is an often undervalued ingredient as it provides the same health benefits of sodium chloride or salt in foods, but allows consumers to reduce their overall sodium intake.»

Cargill offers a variety of reduced sodium products, including Potassium Pro Potassium Chloride, FlakeSelect Potassium Chloride (potassium chloride and salt), FlakeSelect Potassium Chloride/Sea Salt and Alberger brand flake salt.

Cargill operates salt production facilities in both the U.S. and the Caribbean. The company has a long-standing presence in the state of New York, where it employs more than 560 people. The new potassium chloride facility is an extension of Cargills current plant in Watkins Glen, where the company has been a part of the community for more than 40 years.

Cargill provides food, agriculture, financial and industrial products and services to the world. Together with farmers, customers, governments and communities, we help people thrive by applying our insights and 150 years of experience. We have 155,000 employees in 70 countries/regions who are committed to feeding the world in a responsible way, reducing environmental impact and improving the communities where we live and work.
