LiteFoods, Inc. announces it will introduce its Low sodium salt alternative at the upcoming IFT14 Show June 21-24 in New Orleans. Visitors can explore this natural, better-for-you salt substitute at Booth #5319.
While the debate continues to rage about salt’s potential detrimental effect in the nation’s diet, LiteFoods’ new low sodium salt helps balance both sides of the equation. Diets high in sodium are often cited as increasing the risk for high blood pressure, a leading factor in stroke and heart disease. While some salt is necessary in a healthy diet, it’s the balance that has become a problem.
According to a study reported in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension, lowering sodium in our diets could save between 280,000 to 500,000 lives over 10 years.
“We all love the flavor-enhancing properties of salt,” says inventor Dr. Rajen Manicka, “but we tend to use it to excess, and trigger some dangerous health consequences. Our product makes food taste great and yet significantly reduces the sodium intake by replace it with potassium and other natural ingredients.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends reducing sodium intake to prevent or control high blood pressure—the ‘silent killer'.
LiteFoods, Inc. is a specialty food ingredient company with research & development facilities in Australia and Malaysia that concentrates on taking the guilt out of our ‘guilty pleasures’ in consuming comfort foods like fries, breads, sugars and salt.
