About MicroSalt Inc.
MicroSalt Inc, is the developer and manufacturer of a patented, low-sodium salt called MicroSalt®. We are passionate about improving peoples lives with better for you snacks by taking the lead in the industry and providing the best low-sodium salt solution, based on the mechanical transformation of the salt particle itself. This solution is the only one to our knowledge that delivers real salt (sodium chloride) flavour because it is salt. Our new patented technology produces salt crystals that are approximately one hundred times smaller than typical table salt, delivering a powerful saltiness as the micro-grains dissolve in the mouth, resulting in approximately 50% less sodium consumption.
Additionally, the ultra-small particle size enhances product adhesion, which reduces waste and provides improved flavour consistency. MicroSalt® and SaltMe® are registered trademarks of MicroSalt Inc. To learn more please visit https://www.microsaltinc.com.
