Pulverized Salt for Increased Solubility
Microsized® Salts are pulverized, fine-powdered salts with exceptional solubility and blending functionality.
Add a pinch of table salt to a glass of water and watch it "disappear". This process is referred to as dissolution and it illustrates the solubility of salt. It is a process in which the sodium and chlorine units break away from the crystal surface, get surrounded by water molecules, and become hydrated ions.
Salt is a unique compound that is often utilized for its multiple functions in food products. These food products are essentially food systems that can be very complex in terms of sensory attributes (e.g., taste, texture). Using an ingredient with excellent solubility ensures the maximum amount of material is dissolved into another material, thus optimizing the food system for taste, consistency, texture and other properties.
Microsized® Salts are pulverized, fine-powdered salt that have excellent solubility. They are ideal salts for food products such as: peanut butter, icing/filling, breadings/batter, potato/corn Chips, tortilla chips, extruded/Puffed snacks, popcorn (microwave), nuts/seeds oil roasted, nuts/seeds dry roasted, butter, and confectionery. Microsized® Salts can also be used in household cleaning and personal care items.
Microsized® 66 Fine Salt can be used in food products and mildly abrasive household cleaning products as well as many personal care items, including toothpaste and cosmetics.
Microsized® Fine Salt is designed for use in food products requiring extremely fine sizing for blending. It is also an ideal ingredient in mildly abrasive household cleaning products as well as many personal care items, including toothpaste, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals.
Microsized® 95 Extra Fine Salt is designed for use in microwave popcorn, and in continuous butter and cream cheese processes.
Microsized® Salts provide an ideal solution for food processors needing a salt with excellent solubility and blendability.
