The Dead Sea, known for its reputed therapeutic effects, is a popular destination with tourists from all over the world. The water of the Dead Sea is reported to have a salt content of 29 percent, compared to 4 percent from oceans. Its mineral composition is also different from ocean water: 12 to 18 percent of Dead Sea salt is sodium chloride.
A&B Ingredients’ managing director, Gil Bakal, notes that the food service industry can take advantage of these properties and more with the addition of an all-natural sea salt that not only provides 50 percent less sodium, but also does not affect the taste profile of foods.
Referring to the company’s recent addition of Two Seas Sea Salt, he explains, states, “By combining natural elements through a proprietary manufacturing process, Two Seas Sea Salt combines salts from two seas, the mineral rich Dead Sea and the Red Sea, to offer the food service industry a low-sodium, flavorful salt product alternative.”
“Potassium chloride has been the choice substitute for sodium chloride. Unfortunately, the bitter notes of potassium chloride impacts the taste profile of the finished product, which often leaves consumers a bad taste. The properties of Two Seas Sea Salt offer a sea salt that provides 50 percent less sodium without sacrificing flavor.”
Among the benefits:
- 50 percent less sodium than other salts
- Rich in seas based natural potassium
- All natural sea salt taste
- Trace elements from the Mediterranean region
- Ease of use—one-to-one ratio
- Clean label
