PepsiCo plans to reduce sodium in its food products by 2030, aiming to cut sodium in at least 75% of its food offerings and promote diverse ingredients.

The company’s goal is to improve the nutritional profile of its products and reaffirm its ambitions.

“We are in a constant cycle of innovation to reimagine the foods we make and how we make them, so we can bring better choices to our consumers, without ever compromising on taste,” PepsiCo Executive Vice President and Chief Science Officer René Lammers stated.

“Consumers enjoy our products more than one billion times a day, which provides an opportunity — and the privilege — to have an impact. We set a high bar to improve the nutritional profile of our products, and these new goals reaffirm our ambitions,” Lammers added.

“An industrywide approach is necessary to meaningfully reduce sodium intake and introduce important sources of nutrition to help diversify diets,” Lammers said.

“And it’s important for us to take a leadership position to help be a catalyst for change.”

“PepsiCo is setting a new sodium reduction goal, with category targets that consider guidance from public health experts including the World Health Organization and are approximately 15-30 percent lower than the company’s current target for key convenient food categories,” the company stated.

“Our new sodium goal aims for a 15 percent sodium reduction in our U.S. Lay’s Classic Potato Chips, which would result in a sodium level of 140 mg per 28 g serving.”

This comes in response to high sodium consumption worldwide, with the company setting a new sodium reduction goal of 15% for Lay’s Classic Potato Chips in the U.S.

The company is working to optimize flavor while using less sodium, with the goal of maintaining the same taste and appearance of their products.

“If you just so happen to be a supertaster, you may notice a slight difference in the chip flavor, but chances are you won’t be able to detect any change in Lay’s Potato Chips’ appearance or taste,” Allrecipes’ Novella Lui said.

“So, don’t panic — there’s no reason to stock up on potato chips because you will likely end up with something that tastes like the same Lay’s you know and love, only a little better for you,” she added.
