18 Nov 2016 --- Valio Oivariini has launched a lower salt blended spread which contains 50% less salt than ordinary spreads.

A Valio cheese with 50% less salt was also launched in Finland under the Polar brand in May 2016. Valio Polar is presented in 270g packs of cheese slices and is made with Valsa salt, which contains 80% less sodium than ordinary salt and is rich in iodine. Kimmo Luoma of Valio briefly explains the technology for both the cheese and spreadable butter space. “There is a global issue in that the sodium intake is too high and we have therefore developed a unique way to reduce the sodium level in our products like spreadable butter and cheese. It is based on milk minerals like potassium, where we replace sodium,” he says. Luoma notes that the company has also partnered with a bakery supplier in Finland in taking this technology into a reduced sodium bread.
