About the Report

Reducing dietary sodium intake is one of several ways for lowering the blood pressure. Reducing blood pressure, ideally to the normal range, reduces the risk of stroke, heart disease, heart failure, and kidney disease. Another dietary measure to lower blood pressure is to consume a diet rich in potassium. A potassium rich diet also blunts the effects of salt on blood pressure, may reduce the risk of developing kidney stones, and possibly decrease bone loss with age. The recommended intake of potassium for adolescents and adults is 4,700 mg/day.

Potassium chloride is the most common salt alternative since it tastes a lot like sodium chloride. It is the main ingredient in reduced- or no-salt substitutes. It has a bitter aftertaste, especially when heated, and so isn't recommended for cooking. Some companies add L-lysine, a common amino acid, to mask or neutralize the bitter taste.
Sodium-free substitutes contain 100 percent potassium chloride, while "lite" salts replace up to half of the table salt with potassium chloride.
Apart from this, there are many more ingredients which form low sodium compositions and could be used to replace sodium chloride in the diet. This report mainly concentrates on the methods of reducing or substituting the sodium chloride in foods.

Dolcera report focuses on finding the relevant patents encompassing the research that has been taking place in this field. Dolcera has a standardized and tested procedure to formulate comprehensive patent search strategies to retrieve all the relevant patents. The report highlights year-wise patent activity (trend line) along with the key industrial players in the field. A comprehensible result in the form of Dolcera dashboard has been given. Dashboard links the Companies in each category to their patents, hence making an interactive platform for analysis. Dolcera has retrieved around 436 relevant patents related to Low sodium compositions in Foods, covering around 50 countries. Furthermore, several patents have been mapped to commercially available products produced by the respective assignees and other licensees.
