Sugar in My Salt? I Mean, Really?

I do read labels, for the most part. I like to stay as healthy as I can, whether my freelance earnings are nil or nice. But salt? Do I have to read salt labels?

Guess I do.

Little did I know that salt wasn't all my salt contained.

Here are the Ingredients, straight from its own label:
Calcium Silicate
Potassium Iodide
And is there any surprise why Americans are getting fatter and sicker each year when dextrose, aka sugar, is added to salt?

I'd like to know how this was approved by governmental standards.

This was a store brand, which I won't embarrass on the Net (at this time). And I bought it because "This salt supplies iodide, a necessary nutrient," which is clearly printed on its label. But given what else is detailed on its label, I'm wondering if we can trust anything this manufacturer and its distributor says.

I wasted good money buying a cheap brand of iodized salt, which is now relegated to my trash can. I would suspect that salt without the added sugar would have been even cheaper, so I have no clue what was going on here. Sugary salt should never have been offered for public consumption to begin with. Shame on everyone involved in this fiasco.

Rant over.

For the moment.
