29 Jun 2017 --- Salt of the Earth's flagship sodium-reduction ingredient, Mediterranean Umami, has won an IFT17 Food Expo Innovation Award. The award was granted at the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Awards Ceremony on June 25, 2017.

Its unique blend of simple, consumer-friendly ingredients include natural vegetable extracts and sea-salt.

The IFT17 Food Expo Innovation Awards program—inaugurated in 2007—honors “outstanding innovation in products, ingredients, applications, instruments, equipment, technology, and services.” A panel of eight jurors from industry, academia, and government, with expertise in ingredients, product development, processing and packaging technology, and food safety, reviewed all entries before voting for Salt of the Earth’s Mediterranean Umami.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious innovation award for our sodium-reduction ingredient,” says Dovik Tal, CEO of Salt of the Earth. “IFT is the premier organization for the food industry, and this recognition highlights the awareness of the need for significant sodium reduction and the importance of effective natural and clean-label solutions for the industry.”
