#IFTFIRST has come and gone, but we’re still thinking about it!

While naturally rich in umami, cheese, especially aged cheeses, also tend to be high in salt. This is especially true of processed cheese products, such as flavored cheese balls. If approached by a leading CPG client to reformulate its flavored spreadable cheddar cheese “party” ball to reduce sodium and enhance flavor, the product support team at Ajinomoto Health and Nutrition would approach the challenge with the goal of attaining a 25% reduction in total sodium chloride levels, while imparting a delicious aged character to the end product.
With millions of consumers expressing a desire to lower the amount of salt—sodium chloride—in their daily diets, stress typically has been placed on cutting out any ingredient with the word “sodium” in it. But strict removal of all things sodium means that those same consumers are missing out on one of the most effective salt-lowering solutions they can get: monosodium glutamate (MSG).
