SMITHFIELD, VA. — Smithfield Foods, Inc. announced it has reduced sodium in its marinated pork category by an average of 25.5%.

“Our new, lower-sodium offerings will continue to deliver our standard of quality without compromising taste and flavor,” said Jeff Poehls, senior director of case ready for Smithfield.

A blind taste test found no significant difference in the quality and taste between the original varieties and the lower sodium products. All the marinated flavors will be available in the lower-sodium formulation, and these flavors include garlic and herb, golden rotisserie, mesquite, Portobello and teriyaki.

Smithfield also has reduced sodium in its other processed meats categories by an average of 8.2%.
