VEVEY, Switzerland and NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J., June 28, 2016 (PRNewswire) — Nestlé and Chromocell Corporation, a life sciences company focused on the discovery of novel ingredients, have agreed to extend their collaborative effort to reduce sodium in foods. The continuation of the joint effort underscores the commitment both companies share to develop nutritious, tasty foods with less salt.
Nestlé will continue to provide funding to Chromocell to utilise its proprietary Chromovert® Technology, to identify natural compounds that provide similar or equally pleasing tastes to salt.
The continued collaboration builds on the successful identification of numerous compounds that enable sodium reduction. As these compounds move through development towards product launch, the two companies will focus on finding additional natural compounds that enable further sodium reduction across a broad range of products.
Sean Westcott, Head of Nestlé’s R&D centre in Solon, Ohio, said: “We are pleased to extend our partnership with Chromocell as part of our continued commitment to reducing the sodium in our food and beverages, to provide healthier choices while retaining the same great taste.”
Chromocell Chief Executive Officer, Christian Kopfli, said, “We are thrilled to support Nestlé’s continued efforts to reduce sodium and promote public health. The longstanding partnership has produced tangible results and we look forward to providing additional solutions to our partner.”
