Novotaste Salt Reduction Solutions Q&A


How are Novotaste Salt Reduction Solutions Different from Typical Salt Replacers?


Our aim is to combine our salt reduction capabilities, with flavour expertise, in order to provide salt reduction solutions that are application specific.  This allows for effective salt reduced products while minimizing undesirable off-notes.
