Hopkins, MN (PRWEB) March 22, 2011
With sodium reduction on the forefront of many cheese processors in the food industry, Nu-Tek Salt is pleased to introduce a patented technology that offers a solution to cheese processors to reduce their sodium levels. Nu-Tek's patented technology eliminates the metallic note of potassium chloride so it is similar to salt (sodium chloride) in salty perception.
In Cheddar cheese research trials using Nu-Tek reduced sodium salts, evaluators found no significant differences in salty perception and flavor between the control cheese and cheese containing Nu-Tek's reduced sodium salts. Similar results were seen with respect to texture, moisture and shelf-life. This study was conducted at the University of Wisconsin.
Dairy Management Inc. (DMI) has conducted tests to identify flavor issues that need to be overcome when reducing sodium in processed cheese and natural cheeses. Nu-Tek salt has the technology to solve this flavor issue.
In test after test, Nu-Tek Salt's reduced sodium salts have shown exceptional functionality in cheese and processed cheese. These include the critical areas of moisture, texture, water activity and minimizing bacterial growth.
