Salt Additives are used in variety of functions to prevent clustering and also enhance the flow properties of fine salt crystals. Moreover salt additives are also added to fortify salt with various ingredients such as iodine in order to prevent various deficiency diseases.
Anti-caking agents are added in salt in order to ensure that salt is free-flowing. Various fine crystallized that does not include anti-caking agents such as sea salt are usually prone to clumping problem. Moreover in order to avoid various iodine deficiency diseases iodine is added to the various type of salt. Potassium iodide is added at optimum levels in order to get desired results.
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) necessitates food grade salt packaging to indicate all salt additives. In U.S. food grade salt must comply with the Food Chemicals Codex Sodium Chloride Monograph (2008) that specifies that salt may include up to 2% of food-grade free-flowing, or conditioning agents and anti-caking.
Global Salt Additives Market Segmentation
Global Salt additives market can be segmented on the basis of type, application and region. On the basis of type salt additives market is segmented into iodine, anticaking agents, free flowing or conditioning agents.
