Apart from being the largest market for sodium reduction ingredients in Asia-Pacific, accounting for an estimated share of 35% in 2014, China is also likely to emerge as the fastest growing, with a forecast compounded annual rate of over 10% between 2016 and 2021.

Mineral salts form the largest segment, with a share estimated to be about 52% in 2014, though demand growth is expected to be fastest from yeast extracts. Meats and meat products dominate the market for sodium reduction ingredients in China, with fastest growth in demand also anticipated from this key application area.

Sodium reduction ingredients, constituting a crucial component of the food additives industry, are utilized for either reducing the salt content in food products or entirely replacing it. Excessive intake of sodium will lead to a number of adverse health effects, hypertension being foremost among them. Other health risks of the same include stroke, heart failure, osteoporosis, stomach cancer, kidney disease, kidney stones, enlarged heart muscle and headaches. Sodium consumption in excess can also be the cause of increased water retention that leads to puffiness, bloating and weight gain.

Alleviating these conditions to some extent has been possible through the use of sodium reduction ingredients, such as mineral salts, amino acids and yeast extracts. These mineral salts comprises of various salts such as potassium chloride, magnesium sulfate, potassium lactate and calcium chloride, with hydrolyzed vegetable protein, nucleotides and trehalose as well. Such ingredients typically find application on a combo basis or as blends that can be added to food products. A few of these ingredients are also being utilized in the form of masking ingredients that help in avoiding the bitter or metallic aftertastes of certain foods. Versatility in application has provided the requisite impetus to these health promoting products.

Some of the major factors driving demand for sodium reduction ingredients include:

Greater emphasis on health nutrition
Growing knowledge in regard to the detrimental effects of excessive intake of salt
Improvement in taste
Increased demand for processed foods.
