Redpoint Advances Salt Enhancer Discovery Program
Date:10/7/2010

ting the taste properties of complex natural product extracts.  

Redpoint originally developed its MOG technology to discover natural high-potency sweeteners and sweetener enhancers. More recently, Redpoint scientists have developed and optimized a high-throughput salt-taste detection system, in which MOG-trained rodents discriminate salt from other essential tastes (savory, sweet, sour, and bitter).  The MOG approach will be used to evaluate the salt-tasting and salt-enhancing potential of natural sources such as fermentation products and edible plant extracts, with a focus on isolating active components from ingredients already used in the food industry.

Reducing sodium in the dietThe goal of salty taste enhancement is to allow the use of reduced quantities of common salt (sodium chloride) in food and beverage products while preserving the salty taste level desirable to consumers. The Report of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010 recommends an intake of less than 1,500 mg of sodium per day, although the average American consumes more than 4,000 mg of sodium per day. The guidelines are expected to be finalized and published by the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Department of Agriculture (USDA) later this year. Reducing the intake of sodium can be beneficial in reducing the incidence of hypertension and heart attacks in a susceptible, mainly aging, population.  Current solutions for salt replacement have not fully succeeded in maintaining both the taste and functionality of sodium chloride.
