What is Salt for Life® 100 and how is it different?

Salt for Life® 100 (formerly NuTek Salt) is the revolutionary salt for food manufacturers and restaurant chains that improves global health and wellness because it is naturally sourced, tastes great, easy to use and affordable. It is made from a simple yet patented process. Using naturally sourced potassium salt (potassium chloride) from North America and our patented single-crystal technology, we are able to replace regular sodium chloride salt at unprecedented levels without compromising taste or functionality and at minimal cost.  It tastes like salt because it IS salt!  We have helped many of the world's leading companies achieve successful sodium reduction in the range of 30-50% across a variety of foods.  Salt for Life® 100 has No GMOs, is Kosher certified, and has Gluten-Free options available.

What is Salt for Life® Sea Salt & Potassium Salt Blend and how is it different?

Salt for Life® Sea Salt & Potassium Salt Blend is Nature's Alternative Salt, a culinary breakthrough for health-conscious consumers who proactively seek better-for-you products.  Salt for Life® Sea Salt & Potassium Salt Blend combines potassium salt from ancient sea beds in Canada with sea salt from the ocean waters off the northern coast of Brazil.  This revolutionary salt blend, using our patented process, provides great taste, is easy to use, and contains 75% less sodium than common sodium salt.  Salt for Life® Sea Salt & Potassium Salt Blend can be used in the same way as table (sodium) salt to season, cook, or bake. It is O-U Kosher Certified, Gluten-Free and has No GMOs. Salt for Life® Sea Salt & Potassium Salt Blend contains 140 mg of sodium per ¼ teaspoon as compared to 590 mg per ¼ teaspoon of traditional table salt. In addition, each ¼ teaspoon serving has 180 mg of potassium (similar to one-half of a medium banana).

Is Salt for Life® Sea Salt & Potassium Salt Blend safe to use for people with kidney disease?

Salt for Life® Sea Salt & Potassium Salt Blend is a combination of two salts: potassium chloride and sodium chloride.  In some health conditions, including certain types of kidney disease, patients are told by their physicians to limit their intake of sodium and potassium. Please check with your healthcare provider if you are unsure if you should be limiting your sodium and/or potassium intake.

What is potassium salt?

Potassium salt (potassium chloride is its mineral name) is a naturally occurring salt compound. Like common table salt (which is sodium chloride), it is found in crystal form in salt mines. NuTek Food Science sources its potassium chloride from salt mines in North America. Potassium is an essential but under-consumed dietary mineral and electrolyte. Fruit, dairy and vegetables, like dark leafy greens, are the main sources of dietary potassium. As noted in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, potassium is a nutrient of concern because population consumption patterns are generally much lower than recommended.
