MicroSalt secures important patent, shares jump

Low-sodium salt technology company MicroSalt has announced it has been granted an important patent protecting the IP of its micron-sized salt.

This particular patent, entitled Low Sodium Salt Composition, is concerned with how MicroSalt’s low-sodium salt adheres to food particles in a different way than traditional table salt.

Although MicroSalt’s core USP is the reduction of sodium in food without sacrificing taste, today’s announcement demonstrates a broad suite of possible benefits the technology can provide food manufacturers. 

“We believe the grant of patent 11,992,034 is an important milestone for the Company as it further strengthens our IP position in the global low sodium market,” said Rick Guiney, CEO of Microsalt.

MicroSalt has already won commercial contracts from one of the world’s largest snack food businesses and is undergoing testing with others. 

MicroSalt shares were 6% higher at 104p at the time of writing. Tekcapital listed MicroSalt at 43p in February in the first AIM IPO of 2024.
