Salt (Sodium Chloride)

Salt (NaCl) is made from sodium and chloride ions. Salt gives flavor to many meals. This compound is also in the form of a crystal lattice since it is made from two ions joining together.

How can you identify mineral salts in the soil?

You could try taking a small sample and putting it in water and stirring, then sive it and leave for a while in an evaporating dish. then you will probably be left with salt chrystals However, this is just a guess.

What might make everything taste metallic or salty?

It may be a form of neuropathy caused by medications or an illness. You should report this to your doctor. Also, try Biotene moisturizers (sold in stores like Longs, Target, Safeway, etc. and online), toothpaste, gum, and sprays. Keeping your mouth moist is important to prevent infection (thrush and/or bacteria), dental caries, or other damage to your mouth/tongue. Sugar makes it worse--do not turn to hard candy or gums that contain sugar. Drink plenty of water, too, but this alone will not help. It may also be called, "burning mouth," which gets worse throughout the day and causes a burned or salty taste in the mouth that it is often accompanied by discomfort.

More information:

  • Does this happen on a daily basis, or on intervals? Does your tongue or part of it ever look white - that could indicate a fungal infection known as thrush, which occasionally happens after a treatment with antibiotics.
  • In some cases, liver failure causes this taste to occur.
  • Gastroesophogal reflux disease can cause the salty taste (even when no pain is present).
  • Some medicines can make everything taste odd. for example the drug enalapril, which is a drug used to prevent heart failure. Also iron supplements can cause this. Avoid supplements with more than 20 mg iron per tablet. Many antibiotics, especially penicillin-types, can cause this, as ampicillin, amoxicillin.
  • A metallic taste is a vitamin or mineral deficiency.
  • Sometimes, chemotherapy may cause a salty or metallic taste.
  • I had these symptoms when I was pregnant.
  • Many antidepressants could cause the metallic taste.
  • You could have Chemical Sensitivities.
  • I heard somewhere it could be a leaking filling.
  • It could be small amounts of blood in the mouth, blood tastes coppery and salty.
  • Not a vitamin deficiency, but too much of a vitamin/mineral can cause metallic taste. If you are taking supplements or vitamins look on the labels and see if there is an abnormally large amount of something. Like if you're taking a daily vitamin that shows 200% of the recommended daily value of B12, it may be causing the taste. It may be several weeks after stopping the supplement before the taste goes away. Shouldn't be lasting effects.
  • My grandfather reported this when he had chemotherapy.

Why does a cheese contain sodium chloride?

Salt (sodium chloride) serves as a catalyst and/or a speeder-upper for many reactions, including the ones that turn milk or cream into cheese. There are cheeses that can be made with little or no salt, but they are almost all soft cheeses, ones that are made in a short period of time (such as mozzarella). Aged cheeses pretty much need salt to keep things going until they turn into something that's recognizable as cheddar or gruyere or whatever.

What is LONA SALT?

LoNa salt is low in sodium. Mostly used in a clinical set-up under the care and advice of a physician, potassium replaces the sodium in LoNa salt.

If you have renal problems, it's best to avoid salt substitutes as you need to watch your potassium levels.

If you must must eat a very low sodium diet, beware, the normal salt substitutes in the grocery are contraindicated if you take Lisinopril.

How do salt formed?

A salt may be formed if an Acid reacts with, 1- a base, 2-a metallic oxide or 3- a metallic hydride.

Common salt NaCl may be isolated from sea water or mines.

Is salt a leavening agent?

no, but it adds stability to the gluten matrix along with enhancing flavor as well. Forget to add salt to your bread dough and not only will it be bland but it will mess with it rising properly as well..

What are alkyl diazonium salts?

Diazonium means, Di=2, azo=nitrogen and ium= +charge, so two nitrogen atoms having positive charge is a diazonium ion, when such ion is attached to alkyl group it is Alkyl diazonium ion and a negative ion attached to this ion means alkyl diazonium salt as R-N2+Cl-

Salt (Sodium Chloride)

What type of intermolecular force in NaCl?

Solid sodium chloride consists of a lattice of sodium and chloride ions. There are no sodium molecules in the solid, and therefore no intermolecular forces.

In solution sodium chloride is 100% dissociated and there are no molecules.

Vapour phase sodium chloride is iapparently a complex mixture of monomeric NaCl dimeric NaCl and linear polymers. Theoretically the monomer should be highly polar and more like an ion pair than a covalent molecule, nad we would expect a high dipole moment.

What makes everything you eat taste salty?

There are a number of things which could potentially make everything you eat taste salty. These include:

a) potentially you are adding too much salt to your food during cooking

b) your local water supply may contain a lot of sodium (you could try filtering your water

c) old, corroding pans can add extraneous tastes to your food; perhaps see if the salty taste only occurs after using a particular pan

d) not rinsing off washing up liquid/dishwasher powder adequately

e) a dental infection

f) certain medications you may be taking

Oceans and Seas
Salt (Sodium Chloride)

How did the ocean get its salt?

As rocks weather and erode, sediments find their way to the seas and oceans through streams and rivers, taking minerals such as salts with them. These are dissolved in the water and do not evaporate, so that the salinity of seawater increases over time. It has been a gradual process and has taken billions of years to reach the salinity we have today.

Other sources include hydrothermal vents and salt beds at the bottom of the ocean.

The oceans usually contain 35 parts of salts for every 1000 parts of sea water. This is lower in some places where there is a lot of fresh water coming into the ocean. It is higher where the Sun is very strong and evaporates more of the water. When all the water is gone, the salts are left behind as solid, white crystals.

How do you remove salt from food when you're cooking?

Add a raw potato to the food and cook some more.

You can also add a sugar to counteract the salt, the raw potato works best in soups, but don't forget to take it out before serving.

Salt from food can be removed by adding more base ingredients, fresh lemon juice, sugar or honey, tomato or plain yoghurt.
