Technologies to minimize the salty taste of electrolytes

PepsiCo is seeking new technologies to minimize the perception of a salty taste in beverages containing electrolytes.

PepsiCo is open to a range of collaboration types, but the technology should be available for scale-up within the next 3 year.

Solutions of interest include:

  • Taste advantaged salts (less salty than NaCl), other mineral ingredients, or blends that can mask/balance saltiness
  • Encapsulation/plating technologies to reduce the perception of saltiness
  • Ion exchange/ion binding to remove salty tasting anions
  • Salt receptor blockers

Deadline: July 31, 2022

Amount Description

Funding is proposal-dependent and typically ranges from $25,000 to $100,000 for a 6-month proof-of-concept.
