New guide provides a list of methods and the corresponding optimal measurement solution.

Salt is one of the key ingredients for almost any food product. Determining the right salt content makes or breaks the quality of food products.

Global efforts to reduce the salt content in food items to protect an increasingly health-aware population, add to the challenge of controlling salt content in a simple, quick and accurate manner.

To assist those working with food, Mettler Toledo has recently created an extensive guide for salt determination in food. This comprehensive guidebook encompasses a wide range of topics.

After a short introduction to the history of the so-called 'white gold', and a presentation of the different salt types, the guide provides a list of methods and the corresponding optimal measurement solution.

The different methods of salt content determination are presented in detail and tips and tricks to enhance these determination processes are provided.

Methods discussed include Argentometric titration of salt, determination of salt content with ion selective electrodes, as well as salt content determination based on density and ash content.

The guide is a comprehensive source of information about salt determination in food and can be downloaded for free at: www.mt.com/salt-lab.
