Micronized salt are finest and smallest granules of salt. Micronized salt has such a fine structure that it attains high solubility. Micronized salts are designed in such a way that it can be blended easily with any food item and personal care products among others. Micronized salt has an estimated caking resistance of around 4 months, so in order to improve the caking resistance of micronized salts, it should be stored in a dry place, keeping humidity below 75%. Micronized salt is also used as a key ingredient in Halo therapy, also known as salt therapy. Salt therapy is a method of inhaling micronized salt air particles, these particles help in absorbing bacteria and pollutants from the lungs and thus providing a cleansing and an anti-inflammatory effect.
Reasons for Covering this Title
According to USDA, the processed food industry is the prime revenue-generating sector globally. With the export of almost all kinds of processed preparation and meat products, the North America region is in substantial demand for ingredients to feed the industries. The salt is primarily used to increase shelf-life of meat and vegetables and as a flavoring agent. These two sectors are expanding into global markets which are anticipated to fuel demand for food grade salt to carter the demand. Micronized salt is majorly used in food industry due to its high purity and consistency, this with a high demand of food grade salt in processed food and beverage industry is expected to drive the micronized salt market over the forecast period. Global beef and veal production market are forecast to witness a growth of about 2% in 2018, to 62.6 million tons, and Brazil, along with the US is anticipated to contribute half of the growth to the global market. Brazil and Argentina are among the top four countries which are expected to assist in the extension of global exports of beef and veal market in 2018, which is forecast 3% higher than 2017. Micronized salt enables creating an anti-microbial environment for the processed meat products and also dehydrates the processed meat product. Micronized salt is the purest form of a salt which performs the preserving functionalities of the salt with utmost perfection, owing to such properties the demand of the micronized salt is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period.
