Challenger opts for salt-free style

Challenger Foods has developed a salt-free format for its cooked chicken products, which it claims retains the full flavour of the original products.

Only the natural sodium levels of the raw material are present in the new range. The company has replaced the salt with a clean-tasting potassium lactate.

Challenger has also replaced all salt in its marinades range, which contains around 40 diffe-rent types.

The new range has been developed after research at the University of Bristol backed up the initial development work carried out by Challenger in conjunction with Purac UK.
