Abstract

Humans cannot live without salt as it brings out the flavor in foods. It is also a fact that salt is present almost everywhere inside our body, where it is both a requirement and a nourishment for certain cellular activities. This paper focuses two areas of studies: the analysis of different food salts and their benefits in health. The samples salts are collected from different regions. The analysis part included solubility of food salts in water at various temperature, pH of food salts, conductivity of food salts, determination of the amount of Na+ ion, I- ion and Cl- ion, the moisture content of food salts. The results obtained from the antimicrobial properties, vitamin C content, fermentation of yeast, rehydration solution experiments confirmed the benefits of various food salts in human health.
