    Processors can optimize food safety with the two products at relatively low concentrations.

ional® product line

WTI’s patented IONAL line of functional ingredients improves product quality and safety, while increasing yield and reducing purge loss.

Studies show that IONAL, a granular, water-soluble blend of buffered sodium citrate or buffered potassium citrate, increases the functionality of brines, stabilizes the color and flavor muscle proteins, and reduces purge loss.

Due to its superior ionic strength – almost twice that of salt – processors can increase water-holding capacity while reducing the amount of salt their recipes contain.

Leading USDA and academic researchers have demonstrated that IONAL Plus and IONAL LC inhibit the outgrowth of Clostridium perfringens and Listeria monocytogenes at low concentrations.

IONAL is readily soluble and easy to incorporate in marinades and seasoning blends.
