that's exact what I want it to be but it just uses potassium chloride instead of sodium. Still salt though.

Comeon, you're the chemist guy, didn't you learn about salts?

Also, there are chemicals that taste up to something like 6000 times sweeter than table sugar to the human tongue. Artificial sweeteners take small fractions of these and cut them into other ingredients to invent new kinds of sugar.

I'm not sure that's how it works with such basic molecules.

The warning that it doesn't contain iodide is pretty good too. Who would use this stuff? Potassium gets really bad pretty fast.

That's...weird. I mean, there are those salt substitutes. My mom has to have a very low sodium diet and used those for a while, til we read that they might cause some other problems. However, it does say real salt...


This is kinda like selling dehydrated water, isn't it.
