PepsiCo Develops 'Designer Salt' to Chip Away at Sodium Intake

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/...31602283791566

Quote:
Later this month, at a pilot manufacturing plant here, PepsiCo Inc. plans to start churning out batches of a secret new ingredient to make its Lay's potato chips healthier.

The ingredient is a new "designer salt" whose crystals are shaped and sized in a way that reduces the amount of sodium consumers ingest when they munch. PepsiCo hopes the powdery salt, which it is still studying and testing with consumers, will cut sodium levels 25% in its Lay's Classic potato chips. The new salt could help reduce sodium levels even further in seasoned Lay's chips like Sour Cream & Onion, PepsiCo said, and it could be used in other products like Cheetos and Quaker bars.

All the more reason to leave the Classic chips alone.

I use the Lays Lightly Salted Potato Chips - 50% less sodium, and they actually taste good.
