The sensory properties of salt
Salt acts as a flavor enhancer and amplifies the flavors of food.
it therefore considerably improves the taste and sensory profile of food.

This specific action of salt makes food more pleasant and increases the pleasure of eating.
Ion Na +
Salt is a mineral made
of two ions. Na + (sodium) ion
and the Cl- (Chlorine) ion.
It is ion Na + which stimulates the taste
by its direct action on contact with
taste buds. So he reveals and
enhances the flavors.
The salty flavor
The other salt ion, Cl- brings
The salty taste reinforces
flavors. This salty note
is also physiologically
source of pleasure and
it stimulates apetite..
Nutrionix multi-ion salt replacement technology
Nutrionix mineral salts develop, like salt, ionic forces and interactions which give them sensory properties.
Nutrionix knowledge and mastery of mineral ionic mixtures, their sensory and functional behaviors and synergies, make it possible to formulate salty, balanced, low-sodium salts.
The salty taste
Nutrionix salts reduced in sodium, also develop an intense salty note by its Cl- ions and other similar
Many of the Nutrionix minerals also have masking properties.
They mask the bitter and metallic aftertaste. They therefore balance and improve the sensory profile.
The health plus point
With sodium reduction up to 80%
and their high mineral content,
Nutrionix salts are
both tasty, healthy.
A tool for
nutritional health and wellness.
