What, no generic "snacks" subcategory???
In the grocery store you can find containers of salt in two
basic types. There is "ordinary" salt (Iess expensive),
then there is "iodized" salt (more expensive). People
encouraged to buy the iodized salt because iodine is an
nutrient in the diet, and lots of folks don't get
enough from other foods.
It has occurred to me that the overall/generic "snacks"
industry is often reviled for selling "junk food" --and a
of that food is rather salty. Perhaps they could improve
their image by using iodized salt in their recipes, instead
of plain ordinary salt. I tend to think that any salty
especially promotes itself as being a "gourmet" or
"premium" type would jump at this Idea.

manufacturers to include a substantial
porportion of the RDA of most vitamins,
minerals and trace elements without
affecting the product.

doing it for decades.

the "healthy" category !
