Nu-Tek Salt
What the Studies Show: Laboratory Testing – Sensory Attributes & Functionality
Nu-Tek Salt has been tested in a number of university & industrial laboratories for both sensory attributes (tastes) & functionality, including its effect on yield and water activity.

French Fries – French Fries – French fries were tested by Food Perspectives in Minneapolis. A 42% reduction in sodium had no negative impact on taste... Overall scores were identical for fries with traditional salt compared with those made with Nu-Tek salt.


Ham – The University of Nebraska tested a 25% reduction in sodium in Deli Ham & confirmed that there was no discernible difference in flavour.


Yield - Testing of marinated chicken breasts, with target salt levels of 1% (using either sodium chloride or the Nu-Tek Salt) and phosphate added at a level of 0.3%, then baked for 20 minutes at 350°F. Chicken breasts results showed an increase in yield when the Nu-Tek Salt was used.


Additional testing at the University of Minnesota was conducted to look at water activity levels of sodium chloride compared to the Nu-Tek Salt. Results confirmed that the Nu-Tek Salt, when blended 50/50 with sodium chloride (table salt), resulted in water activity that is similar to or better than that of Salt (NaCl).


Nu-Tek Salt can be used to reformulate low-sodium products where traditional salts (NaCl) add functionality to your application (e.g. meats, cheese, and bakery).

The modified potassium chloride of Nu-Tek Salt, and functions as well or better with the benefit of added yield. (It’s worth remembering that the functional attributes of salts cannot be replaced with salt-free options like flavours, MSG, spices or yeast extracts.)

The Sodium/ Potassium Balance
“… 88% of all sodium in the [Canadian] diet is added during food manufacturing or preparation and is not present naturally.”
“Efforts to reduce sodium in foods must take into consideration both food security and food safety.”
