CURIOUS FACTS ABOUT SALT

SALT, 1a. A colorless or white crystalline compound consisting of sodium chloride (NaCl) used in food preparations…. 3. Sustenance or support.... 4. An ingredient or element that gives savor, piquancy, or zest…. (reference: Webster’s Dictionary).

Salt was the very first seasoning known to civilization. From the earliest ages it has been used to improve the quality of life. It is said that life or food “without salt” is bland, insipid, colorless.

Salt is a combination of two chemical elements: sodium (Na+) and chloride (Cl-). Sodium is an unstable metal that ignites in contact with water while chloride is a lethal gas. The combination of these two elements, however, results in an essential substance to life on earth.

In the animal kingdom, salt regulates water exchange between body cells and the environment, helping nutrients absorption and waste elimination into the bloodstream. Sodium is needed for muscle contraction (which includes heartbeats) and neural impulses transmission.

Excess sodium consumption may be damaging to your health. Use salt sparingly and never exceed the recommended intake levels.
