Overview: What is Salt?
Salt is one of the most commonly used ingredients – with a diverse range of types, grades, sizes, sources and styles available. These can range of sources, whether mined or evaporated from seawater and the locale of its sourcing. These types all have slightly different properties that affect their use within various industries, whether in food, beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and industrial ranges.
It is a crucial component of many recipes within the food industry as salt is one of the five most basic tastes. As such, it is commonly used both as a flavouring and preservation agent. You can find this in a wide variety of meals, foods, sauces and much more. It has been used for centuries to extend shelf life and minimise bacterial and microbial life through salting and drying with preservation.
Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic businesses use salt for its range of properties. For one example, toothpaste manufacturers use salt as a deodoriser and polishing agent. Beyond this, you can find salt as a common ingredient in the remedy and relief of dry, itchy skin while also adding exfoliation and toning properties. Suppose you were to enter more industrial circles. In that case, you will also find this being used in the manufacture of PVC, plastic and rubber products throughout the year and as a de-icing agent in the cold, snowy and icy weather.
