FDA issues final guidance on alternate name for Potassium Chloride in food labeling

The purpose of the guidance is to allow food manufacturers to use the name “potassium salt” on food labels as alternative to the common name, “potassium chloride”. This salt alternative is formulated to reduce sodium content. This alternate name also makes it more clear the consumer as to what this item is.

This guidance supports the FDA’s Nutrition Innovation Strategy to reduce chronic disease in the U.S. through improved nutrition, clear consumer information, and fostering healthier food options. You can read the full report here.
