SOMERSET, N.J. — A new line of salt replacers and salt substitutes from Advanced Food Systems may reduce sodium in products by up to 50% without sacrificing flavor impact. The ingredients may be used in such products as snacks, sauces, gravies, dressings, spices and seasonings. The salt replacers contain some salt while the salt substitutes do not.

AFS Salt Replacer T#16 and AFS Sea Salt Replacer T#2 are made with natural flavors, free of allergens and formulated to provide a clean flavor and minimize the bitterness common to many salt replacers, according to Somerset-based AFS. For labeling purposes, Sea Salt Replacer T#2 is made with a small amount of sea salt but contains 50% less sodium.

AFS Salt Substitute NTF-25 is a salt substitute with excellent saltiness and minimum bitterness. It may be substituted for 25% to 50% of salt in a variety of foods.
