Technologies Ready for Transfer and Commercialization - Nano salt (NaCl)

  • Nano sized salt increases the surface area to volume ratio thereby increases its functionality in many folds with reduced sodium content
  • This might lower the amount of salt in meals that have been surface-salted
  • The use of nanosalt can result in lower amounts of additives by facilitating their easier mixing through products.
  • The addition of nanosalt for surface salting would be a game-changer for food industries to develop food commodities without altering consumer's acceptance and meet recommended daily limits of consumption.
  • Rapid perception of maximum saltiness
  • Enhanced saltiness perception compared to common salt
