 New Technology to Help Reduce Salt Content in Crisps Without Compromising Taste

Researchers at University of Nottingham are trying to develop new forms of crisps that have the same taste as the current ones without the dangers of any health problems.

The researchers revealed that they hope to reduce the salt content in the crisps without compromising on its taste.

The researchers looked into what exactly happens when we put crisps in our mouths and found that the salt content present in the crisps are released only after 20 seconds.

The researchers said that they are looking into developing techniques that will make the crisps to release the salt content sooner and thus reduce the overall salt levels present in the product. "Our aim is to develop a series of technologies that accelerate the delivery of salt to the tongue by moving the burst from 20 seconds to within the time that you normally chew and swallow", Dr Ian Fisk, a lecturer in the Division of Food Sciences, said.
