While United Kingdom is the second largest market for sodium reduction ingredients in Europe after Germany, it is slated to be the fastest growing, with a forecast compounded annual rate of about 13% over 2016-2021. Yeast extracts are likely to register the fastest growth in consumption during the aforementioned period, though demand for mineral salts as sodium reduction ingredients is anticipated to account for the largest share. In terms of application, snacks dominate the market for sodium reduction ingredients in United Kingdom, with an estimated 28% share in 2014, which is likely to continue in the future. However, faster growth in demand for sodium reduction ingredients is expected to be witnessed by meats and meat products during 2016-2021.

Sodium reduction ingredients, constituting a crucial component of the food additives industry, are utilized for either reducing the salt content in food products or entirely replacing it. Excessive intake of sodium will lead to a number of adverse health effects, hypertension being foremost among them. Other health risks of the same include stroke, heart failure, osteoporosis, stomach cancer, kidney disease, kidney stones, enlarged heart muscle and headaches. Sodium consumption in excess can also be the cause of increased water retention that leads to puffiness, bloating and weight gain.

Alleviating these conditions to some extent has been possible through the use of sodium reduction ingredients, such as mineral salts, amino acids and yeast extracts. These mineral salts comprises of various salts such as potassium chloride, magnesium sulfate, potassium lactate and calcium chloride, with hydrolyzed vegetable protein, nucleotides and trehalose as well. Such ingredients typically find application on a combo basis or as blends that can be added to food products. A few of these ingredients are also being utilized in the form of masking ingredients that help in avoiding the bitter or metallic aftertastes of certain foods. Versatility in application has provided the requisite impetus to these health promoting products.

Some of the major factors driving demand for sodium reduction ingredients include:

- Greater emphasis on health nutrition
- Growing knowledge in regard to the detrimental effects of excessive intake of salt
- Improvement in taste
- Increased demand for processed foods.
