See ionic compound.
A white granular compound (sodium chloride) used to season foods. Iodine has been added to salt labeled "iodized," and other additives are sometimes included (especially in table salt) to prevent the salt from forming clumps. Kosher salt is coarse-grained and does not contain any additives. When a recipe instructs "season to taste," it is generally referring to the use of salt.
A basic taste characterized by solutions of chlorides, bromides, iodides, nitrates, and sulfates of potassium and lithium.
a solid compound composed of both metallic and nonmetallic elements, often as ions.

In everyday language salt generally refers to sodium chloride and other edible salts. In chemistry, salt is a term used for ionic compounds composed of positively charged cations and negatively charged anions, so that the product is neutral and without a net charge. These ions can be inorganic (Cl-) as well as organic (CH3-COO-) and monoatomic (F-) as well as polyatomic ions (SO42-).
Crystals used as a seasoning and preservative. One of the major taste groups. Available as sea salt or rock salt, which is then further refined for cooking salt and table salt.

crystaline ionic compounds such as NaCl.
A compound produced by the combination of a base, commonly a metallic oxide, with an acid; some common salts are sodium chloride, potassium chloride, and magnesium sulfate
Common table salt or sodium chloride.
Sodium Chloride (NaCl). This is one component of the outer layer of the LoFricÂ® catheter. The salt increases the osmolality of the LoFric catheter and prevents the water from being removed from the catheter's surface after insertion. The patented addition of salt to the LoFricÂ® catheter coating is unique. It ensures balanced osmolality and also optimizes both water binding and water retaining properties. LoFricÂ® is the only hydrophilic catheter which uses salt in this way to increase osmolality and ensure that water is retained on the surface of the catheter throughout the catheterization process - from insertion to withdrawal.
crystalline compound that results from improper pH or toxic buildup of fertilizer. Salt will burn plants, preventing them from absorbing nutrients.
The ionic product of a reaction between an acid and a base. Water is also formed
One of the products resulting from a reaction between an acid and a base.
Salt is also called Sodium Chloride. Salt is one of the main sources of sodium in foods. Sodium is an essential element for the human body.
This term goes well beyond common table salt or the rock salt spread on icy roads. A salt is any substance that forms as a result of the chemical reaction between an acid and a base.
1. A substance resulting from the chemical interaction of an acid and a base, usually sodium and chloride. 2. A white granular substance (sodium chloride) used to season foods.
All salt, whether from the sea, artesian basins or mines, is sodium chloride. Differences in taste depend on how much it is purified and processed and on the natural vegetable and mineral content remaining in the salt. It can be sold as blocks, crystals, flakes or fine ground.
A compound made up of the positive ion of a base and the negative ion of an acid.
A generic term which scientifically refers to a cation and an anion. However, in aquatics, it refers to the proper combination of inorganic salts, composed mainly of sodium and magnesium chloride.
An ionic compound with a positive ion that comes from a base and a negative ion that comes from an acid.
general term used for ionic compounds composed of positively charged cations and negatively charged anions, resulting in a net neutral charge.
The common name for sodium chloride, or table salt. In brewing terms, any compound produced by the reaction of an acid with an alkali.
The common name for the specific chemical compound sodium chloride used in the regeneration of ion exchange water softeners. In chemistry, the term is applied to a class of chemical compounds which can be formed by the neutralization of an acid with a base.
The substance formed when the hydrogen of an acid is replaced by a metal.
Salt is chemically know as sodium chloride (NaCl). It adds a flavors to baked goods. It slightly enhances the flavors of other ingredients. Salt has a retarding (slowing down) effect on the activity of bread yeast. Use it sparingly.
A compound which, with water, is formed by the reaction of an acid with a base. Most salts encountered in the cleaning industry are alkaline salts, such as sodium carbonate, with a pH higher than 7.0. Common table salt is only one of the many chemical salts.
(n) in chemistry, a compound consisting of a positive ion other than hydrogen, and a negative ion other than hydroxyl. (See electrolyte.)
Also referred to as Sodium Chloride. It is required to 'carry' the sodium that facilitates the ion exchange process. It is available in granules, powder, tablets or pellets. Ask your supplier for further details.
The most important seasoning in cooking, without a doubt. Salt is a mineral that is mined or taken from the sea. Coarse kosher or sea salt are often preferred, but it is really a matter of taste. The most important thing to remember when adding salt is to add little by little. You can add more but you cannot take it out. If you can taste the salt, you added too much.
A salt is formed when the hydrogen of an acid is replaced by a metal.
An ionic compound formed by the reaction between an acid and a base.
In medicine, salt usually refers to sodium chloride, table salt, used for seasoning food, for the preservation of meat, etc. Salt is found in the earth and in sea water and is isolated by evaporation and crystallization from sea water and other water impregnated with particles of salt. See the entire definition of Salt

An inorganic compound consisting of a cation other than H+ and an anion other than OH-.
Salt (NaCl or sodium chloride) is a crystalline chemical that occurs naturally around the world, in oceans and in salt deposits. The oceans on Earth contain salt (roughly 2.6% salt by weight), as do some lakes. The mineral halite, formed of NaCl, is a colorless to gray to brown crystal. Salt has a hardness of 2.5 and a specific gravity of 2.165. Its index of refraction is 1.5442. NaCl melts at 800.0 °C and boils at 1,465 °C. In solution (dissolved in water), salt is neutral (it is neither acidic nor basic).
1. Sodium chloride, NaCl, used for preserving the freshness of food. 2. Substance that results from reaction between acid and base.
an ionic compound, the result of the neutralization of an acid by a base. When HCl(aq) reacts with NaOH(aq), the result is a salt, NaCl(aq), and H2O.
The mineral "sodium chloride." Most of today's salt comes from mines left by dried salt lakes. Used as a flavoring agent in many foods. Because of its value as a preservative, salt was a vital commodity to early civilization.
As a natural spice, salt's many uses include enhancing the taste of food and drink in which it is used it. more information - recipes
1. Chemistry A chemical compound formed by the neutralization of an acid with a base. For example, H2SO4 (acid) + 2NaOH (base) = Na2SO4 (salt) + 2H2O (water). 2. Water Treatment Sodium chloride (NaCl) or potassium chloride (KCl), both of which are used in solution form to regenerate cation exchange water softeners and some dealkalizers. 3. Common table salt, which is sodium chloride (NaCl).

It is found native in the earth, and is also produced by the evaporation and crystallization of sea water and other water impregnated with saline particles. Salt is used extensively in ground or granulated form as a food seasoning and preservative.

Generally, any ionic compound except those that contain hydroxide or hydrogen ions. Specifically, any compound other than water formed by the reaction of an acid and a base. In common usage, the term salt, or table salt, refers to the ionic compound sodium chloride, NaCl.
A salt, in chemistry, is any ionic compound composed of cations (positively charged ions) and anions (negative ions) so that the product is neutral (without a net charge). These component ions can be inorganic such as chloride (Cl−), as well as organic such as acetate (CH3COO−) and monoatomic ions such as fluoride (F−), as well as polyatomic ions such as sulfate (SO42−). Salts are formed when acids and bases react together.
In chemistry, salt is a neutral compound composed of ions.
