Sodium reduction ingredients perform an important activity of reducing salt content in the food products. They form an integral part of the global food additive industry. The large structure of food industry has a very positive commercial impact on the sodium reduction ingredients. Currently, mineral salts hold a significant share of almost 60% in the sodium reduction market, followed by yeast extracts. The rising awareness about the ill effects of excessive sodium intake is driving the market. Also, the government interventions and multi-sector effort by various organizations and manufacturers have accelerated the sodium reduction ingredients market.

The sodium reduction market is estimated to reach $1,006.6 million by 2018, growing at CAGR of 11.0% from 2013. This research report provides a comprehensive analysis of the global sodium reduction ingredients market, which is witnessing steady growth on grounds of diverse applications in the bakery and confectionaries, dairy and frozen food, and meat products. Ingredients such as mineral salts, amino acids, yeast extracts have been identified as the key ingredients used in sodium reduction process. Mineral salts include various salts such as potassium chloride, magnesium sulfate, potassium lactate, calcium chloride. Some of the other types have also been included such as hydrolyzed vegetable protein, nucleotides, and trehalose. These ingredients are usually used in combination or offered as blends to be used in food products. Some of them are also used as masking agents to avoid bitter or metallic after-taste effects. The advent of many such versatile functions has escalated their usage in application-specific ingredients and new upscale end-use products. The sodium reduction market was examined in terms of value on regional and country-wise levels. The changing trends in the consumption of sodium reduction ingredients reflect the increased product penetration and purchasing power of the global population in the emerging economies.

This report describes the sodium reduction market across the globe. The regions covered include North America (U.S., Canada, Mexico), Europe (U.K., Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand), and Rest of the World (Africa, Latin America, the Middle East). The growth strategies of key market players have been identified and analyzed. The manufacturers are keenly aware of the emerging Latin American and Eastern European markets as potential drivers of the sodium reduction ingredients business. The market is predicted to continue flourishing in both, developed and developing regions. The growth is also attributed to the growing demands for healthy and nutritious products and increase in demand for processed food. U.S. is one of the largest players in the sodium reduction ingredients business due to excessive demand for processed food products followed by Western Europe. In Europe, Western Europe represents one of the largest markets for increased consumption of processed food.

Sodium reduction by ingredients form an important part of food additives industry. They are mainly responsible for reducing the salt content in food products either by completely replacing sodium or by reducing its content.

Strategy for Sodium Reduction

Sodium Reduction Ingredients Market

Source: Related Research Publications, MarketsandMarkets Analysis

The sodium reduction market experienced a steady growth due to the refusal of customers to compromise with taste. The consumers perceive that decrease in salt content would result into reduction in taste of the product. However, due to the efforts by various government and non-government organizations, the market underwent a slight alteration as the consumers have started accepting the low salt products.

In 2012, the global sodium reduction market was valued at more than half a billion, growing at a CAGR of 11.0% through to 2018. Increased focus on health nutrition and awareness about the adverse effects of excessive salt usage, improved taste, increasing demand for processed foods, etc. are the main stimulating forces for the food market. Mineral salts lead the market followed by yeast extracts. The yeast extracts naturally contain umami flavor and hence can be used as an enhancer for other flavors. Because of its original characteristics and extended line of applications, it depicts a faster growth than that of amino acids.

In 2012, North America’s share was the largest market followed by Europe. Europe was the fastest growing market followed by Asia-Pacific in 2012. Mineral salts led the food market with more than half of the market share. Yeast extracts formed the second largest market due to its multi-functional abilities. Sauces, seasonings, and snacks led the applications market for food, followed by meat products. Other application areas such as breakfast cereals, baby foods, and other processed foods formed the fastest growing application segment with a CAGR of 11.6%.
