Specific Sodium Determination – Simple and accurate - METTLER TOLEDO

Health risks related to excess salt

The salt content of food products influences the taste, but can also adversely affect health. There is a clear link between sodium intake and high blood pressure.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has published data showing that blood pressure is the number one health-risk factor in Europe and food producers are forced to declare or even reduce the standardly used salt (sodium chloride) content in foods.

Simple, accurate and calibration free  analysis

The Sodium Analyzer has been specifically designed to simplify the determination of sodium in food products by using the standard addition technique.
It directly determines the harmful sodium (Na+) of sodium chloride (NaCl) in food products rather than the chloride (Cl-), as is measured with argentometric titration.
Simply add a sample and ionic strength adjustment (ISA) solution and start the measurement. That’s it! No system calibration is necessary. Sodium analysis has never been so quick and easy.

 

Reduce investment and operation costs

With the Sodium Analyzer it’s possible to achieve highly accurate results that are comparable to well-known, but much more expensive alternative analytical techniques for sodium determination such as Ion Chromatography (IC) or Atomic Absorption (AAS).
There is no more need for large instrumentation, complex infrastructure or high levels of analytical experience and knowledge that are essential for alternative analytical techniques.
Not only does the Sodium Analyzer reduce initial investment costs, it also reduces operation costs. Replace the silver nitrate (AgNO3) titrant normally used for chloride determination with the cheaper and safer sodium standards and reagents.
Save operator time and increase productivity with fast sample measurements.
