Hi there. Why can I use Himalayan salt for cooking and baking instead of regular table salt and how does mineral acidity affect people\’s health and thoughts on detoxing?
What Does Mineral Acidity Mean?
Mineral acidity means the concentration of mineral acids in a solution or medium. Mineral acids can be naturally occurring or man-made. Think about hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, and sulfuric acid which are all mineral acids that people use for various purposes every day. Hydrochloric acid is used to create the stomachs of pigs for food production. Nitric Acid has many industrial uses like creating fertilizer from air pollutants and explosives for warfare. Sulfuric Acid makes everything from batteries to detergents that clean your dishes so well! The point being these acidic compounds are all created with minerals and we could make an entire article on each one of them alone (yes they are THAT important!). Beyond just those household examples there are many mineral acids that are used just for science.
What Are The Different Types Of Mineral Acidity?
There are many different types of mineral acids because there are many different minerals in this world! Some Minerals dissolve into water more easily than others and some have a stronger charge which means that they hold onto their protons (H+ ions) more tightly. This has something to do with how solid the mineral is at room temperature. For example, Aluminum Sulfate And Sodium Bicarbonate will both dissolve into water without too much trouble but sodium hydroxide NaOH will not ever actually dissolve into water no matter how long you leave it out or what kind of container you put it in. To put it simply, some minerals contribute a more acidic solution when dissolved and others make a more basic or neutral solution.
How Does Mineral Acidity Affect Life?
So if you have ever had an aquarium then you know that pH levels are super important for fish to survive! The reason that water is considered acidic is because of the huge amounts of hydrogen ions from minerals like carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) and nitrates (NO 3 ). They are typically added to drinking water in some places so that it can be used for medical reasons but this same water would kill your fish within minutes. This illustrates how powerful mineral acids can be against life. Some people use this knowledge about mineral acidity to create bombs of various kinds which not only cause death but also destroy buildings, cars, bridges, and even planes!
Why can I use Himalayan salt for cooking and baking instead of regular table salt?
If you know anything about ionic compounds then you probably already know that one of the simplest ways to cook with salt is by using Himalayan salt. All salts, even sea salts are made up of two elements: a positively charged ion and a negatively charged ion. The ‘sodium’ part of table salt actually comes from Sodium Chloride which means it has 1 sodium atom and 1 chloride atom bonded together. To break these saturated bonds (where everything in this compound has found a partner) all you need to do is heat them! This process is called thermal decomposition and turns regular table salt into hot sublimated sodium vapor giving off light like fireflies. Now what if instead of Sodium Chloride I used potassium chlorides?
How does mineral acidity affect people’s health and thoughts on detoxing?
When you eat potassium chlorides and other natural minerals (like sodium bicarbonate from baking soda) your body does not recognize them immediately. Instead they bond with the tartaric acid in your saliva and form potassium bitartrate which is know as cream of tarter. This process is called salivary digestion and it helps to break down large rocks into smaller ones more easily for the rest of your digestive system to take care of! Now let us set one thing straight: there are no such things as ‘toxins’. The best way to think about this word is like a bouncer at a door. If you were trying to come inside but the bouncer didn’t feel that you belonged then he would be the ‘toxin’ and you would be the one being rejected. This is the same process with all of your organs: they are bouncers (called enzymes) that only allow certain minerals to enter into your cells for energy, detoxification, and other various functions. If you could find a way to make them believe that ‘toxins’ were actually people trying to come inside then suddenly BAM! Toxins everywhere!
