Interesting Things About Salt



Halite is the mineral name for the substance that everyone knows as "salt." Its chemical name is sodium chloride, and a rock composed primarily of halite is known as "rock salt."



Sodium makes up 40 percent of salt. If a food label lists sodium instead of salt, multiply the answer by 2.5 for an accurate picture of the salt content.



It is also used in the manufacturing of thousands of other commodities including glass, paper, rubber, and textiles as well as in water softening systems for industry and domestic use.


Frequently Asked Questions

Salt is a mineral largely consisting of the compound sodium chloride. Salt contains so much sodium chloride – around 98% by weight – that most people use the words “Salt” and “Sodium” interchangeably. Salt can be produced by evaporating salt water or extracting solid salt from underground salt mines. Humans have used salt to flavor and preserve foods for thousand of years. Interestingly , Sodium also plays an important role in several biological functions, including fluid balance, nerve conduction and muscle contraction.
Before it reaches your grocery store, table salt also goes through a refining process to remove impurities and any other minerals besides sodium chloride. In the refining process raw Crystal salt harvested from salt fields is crushed and washed in water to remove dust and other impurities present. Then it is dried to produce refined salt. Based on customer requirements additives such as iodine to prevent Iodine deficiency & anticaking agent to help absorb moisture are added.
Refined salt without any additives is a purified form of natural salt.
For manufacture of Iodised refined salt, Potassium Iodate [Iodising Agent] is added. To increase Shelf Life and flowability of refined salt, food grade precipitated Silica (anticaking agent) is added.
If Seawater brine is used for production of raw crystal salt in the salt fields then it is called Seasalt. As Tuticorin has a long shoreline seawater is widely used for production of raw salt. Seasalt is rich in essential minerals such as Sodium Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium etc.
