Permeate is everywhere this summer from trade shows to foreign trade missions. More and more, companies are reaching for milk or whey permeate, often labeled as dairy product solids, to economically improve formulations. Why? Because it works in a variety of applications with added benefits like better product taste and appearance, a clean label and reduced sodium.
Susan Larson, the U.S. Dairy Export Council’s Dairy Detective columnist, explained in a recent article how U.S. permeate is a cost effective solution to reducing sodium in certain foods applications. Specifically, it doesn’t sacrifice the salty taste that is often desired by the consumer palate.
At this year’s IFT16 show, Elizabeth Crawford from FoodNavigator-USA visited the USDEC booth to find out what opportunities exist for manufacturers when formulating sodium-reduced products to preserve taste, save money on raw materials and increase consumer acceptance. The following are insights from our video discussion on reducing sodium with U.S. permeate.

Proposed voluntary sodium reduction goals put forth June 1 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reflect that Americans are getting too much sodium in their diet. FDA’s suggested short and long-term goals would enable food companies and restaurants to gradually adjust sodium levels using innovations like incorporating permeate as a cost-effective, sodium substitute.
