The sodium-reduction ingredient Mediterranean Umami won an IFT17 Food Expo Innovation Award. The award was granted at the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Awards Ceremony on June 25, 2017. 

Mediterranean Umami, produced by Salt of the Earth, received the award for outstanding innovation. The ingredient 

provides a solution to significantly reduce sodium in processed foods while being 100% natural and clean-label. Mediterranean Umami allows product developers to formulate across a range of lower-sodium applications, including bakery pr

oducts. Its blend of ingredients includes vegetable extracts and sea-salt.

The IFT17 Food Expo Innovation Awards program - inaugurated in 2007 - honors “outstanding inno

vation in products, ingredients, applications, instruments, equipment, technology, and services.” A panel of eight jurors from industry, academia, and government, with expertise in ingredients, product development, processing and packaging technology, and food safety, reviewed all entries before voting for the winner.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious innovation award for our sodium-reduction ingredient,” says Dovik Tal, CEO of Salt of the Earth. “IFT is the premier organization for the food industry, and this recognition highlights the awareness of the need for significant sodium reduction and the importance of effective natural and clean-label solutions for the industry.”
