Find out all about the challenges and solutions for sodium reduction in processed meat.

Salt and health are in the news every day. Adults should consume less than 5 grams of salt per day, but the current daily EU salt consumption is 8 to 12 grams per day. The food industry is therefore pushed to reduce sodium.

Processed meat will be one of the target segments that will face growing pressure. This webinar will explore the challenges that come with sodium reduction in processed meat. It will provide insightful guidance in overcoming these challenges.

This in-depth knowledge is presented to you by a unique partnership: AkzoNobel Salt Specialties - the world's leading vacuum salt producer and Givaudan - the world’s leading flavour and fragrance company. This ground breaking partnership has delivered an easy-to-use solution that will simplify new product development for low sodium processed meat, reducing time to market without compromising on taste and food safety.
