Who Invented Salt?


Salt is a natural mineral. The Chinese would gather salt from a lake that dried up every year, about 6000 years BC. They later produced it by boiling brine water. It was a Frenchman that later developed some of the more modern ways of gathering and producing what is now known as table salt.
