Overview: What is Epsom Salt?
Magnesium Sulfate, commonly known as Epsom Salt, is a nearly white, hygroscopic salt with no discernible taste or odour. A range of agricultural, food and pharmaceutical products throughout the UK use Epsom Salts widely.
There are two primary means of manufacturing Epsom Salts. The first route is by directly obtaining it from dry lake beds and similar sources. The other is more industrial - by reacting either Magnesia or Magnesite with Sulfuric Acid. Both routes end with the product being purified, cleaned, dried and milled before packing.
Whether medicines, agriculture, food, and beverage, Magnesium Sulfate has countless applications within these industries. Firstly, you can use Epsom Salts in a range of medications and treatments in bath salts, to soothe aching muscles, and in a range of drawing pastes, asthma, eclampsia and even to supplement low magnesium levels. Additionally, it is a crucial addition to agricultural applications as an addition to fertilizers. Most solutions and blends are pH neutral when added into soils, meaning they become the safe bet for nutrients without affecting the pH levels. Finally, food and beverage companies use magnesium sulfate as a brewing salt and a coagulant to create tofus.
