Italian condiments supplier Acetificio Mengazzoli has launched a liquid salt that could help cut salt consumption.

Il Sale Liquido is sold in a bottle with a pump-activated spray designed to help consumers more easily control how much salt they use. Mengazzoli also claims the liquid form helps the salt blend with other ingredients.

The liquid salt is available in three varieties: red Hawaiian salt, which takes on the colour of a clay used in its production; black Hawaiian salt, which gets its unusual colour from charcoal; and traditional white sea salt.
