Potassium chloride is often used as a salt substitute that reduces the sodium content. Calcium and magnesium are important minerals added to dairy products, infant formulas, and drinks to support bone health. With rising health consciousness, the demand for products with reduced sodium and sugar content is increasing globally. Manufacturers are innovating new product formulations using mineral salt ingredients to meet consumer demand for healthy and nutritional food and beverage options.
