Chloride Analyzer Sales up Dramatically

At Nelson-Jameson, we try our best to answer our customer questions efficiently and correctly. Below is an important question about Chloride Analyzers which should be considered by our food industry audience.

Customer Question:  Why has there been strong demand recently for the Nelson-Jameson M926 Chloride Analyzer?

Nelson-Jameson’s Answer:  Salt is the largest source of added sodium in most food products.   Of course salt is added as a flavor enhancer and it is also used to lower water activity and create a barrier to dangerous microbes. 

Unfortunately salt, and the sodium that comes with it, has been implicated in hypertension leading to cardiovascular disease and strokes.   Consumer movements such as the National Salt Reduction Initiative (NSRI), a coalition of public health and food retailing concerns, have responded by recognizing companies that employ effective salt management programs.  Many food companies which use salt as a major ingredient including Unilever, Kraft Foods, and Heinz have acknowledged NSRI and are committed to following best practices for responsible salt reduction in their products.   Acting on this mandate is also necessary for them to avoid lost market share among their retail customers.

Given what’s at stake, Nelson-Jameson customers are turning to the most reliable instrument available for monitoring salt content: the M926 Chloride Analyzer.  As described in Standard Methods for the Examination of Dairy Products, this instrument is considered accurate due to wide-spread industry validation.   Now with Active Salt software, the M926 is also one of the most versatile instruments for salt testing.  With a click on a tab, a table appears preformatted for weights, dilutions and pipet volumes appropriate for any sample matrix.

For more information about the M926 and how it can help you retain your market share in a new salt adverse world, contact Nelson-Jameson at 1-800-826-8302.
