Salt is a necessary nutrient for the human body to maintain its functions.
In our body, protein, fat, carbohydrates and water, along with calcium, phosphorus, sodium, chloride, potassium, sulfur, magnesium ions are found. Of these, sodium, chloride, potassium and calcium ions provide the body’s electrolyte balance. Since these ions are less or more than a certain value in the human body, they cause disturbances in the body as they will disrupt the electrolyte balance. It is possible to find sodium and chloride from said ions in a salt.
The pure salt contains about 40% sodium and 60% chloride. A large part of the need for sodium and chloride, which is reduced in the body for various reasons, comes from salt.
Salt is used in many sectors for industrial purposes as well as necessary for the human body to maintain its functions. For example, it is used in food, textile, leather, chemical, metallurgical sectors and livestock.
The salt to be used for industrial purposes must also be free of impurities, clean, dry, pure and fluid.
