Verification: There are no poisonous substances in Indian salts that cause cancer

Fake information about salts sold in India is spreading fast on social media. The same false information was also circulated in Mainland China, the United States, Canada, European Union member countries, Australia and New Zealand, etc. There is a difference between Cyanide and Ferrocyanide.

Recently, there have been rumors circulating on the social media in mainland China claiming that potassium ferrocyanide in salt is hazardous to health. Read more

What Is Cyanide

The term “cyanide” refers to any chemical containing a carbon-nitrogen (CN) bond. Many substances contain cyanide, but not all of them are deadly poisons. Sodium cyanide (NaCN), potassium cyanide (KCN), hydrogen cyanide (HCN), and cyanogen chloride (CNCl) are lethal, but thousands of compounds called nitriles contain the cyanide group yet aren’t as toxic. In fact, you can find cyanide in nitriles used as pharmaceuticals, such as citalopram (Celexa) and cimetidine (Tagamet). Nitriles aren’t as dangerous because they don’t readily release the CN- ion, which is the group that acts as a metabolic poison.

Potassium ferrocyanide

Potassium ferrocyanide, as a legal food additive, is widely used as a powder food anticoagulant at home and abroad. As long as it is legally added to the standard, it will not affect human health.
Is potassium ferrocyanide poisonous?

Many people will pay attention to potassium cyanide when they see the words potassium ferrocyanide. Potassium ferrocyanide (Potassium Ferrocyanide) is commonly known as yellow blood salt, and its chemical formula is K4[Fe (CN) 6]. 3H2O. The content of potassium ferrocyanide in salt bags was measured by Fe(CN)6]4-, i.e. ferrocyanide. Because ferrocyanide is a complete unit, 6 cyanide ions are coordinated with two valent iron. Therefore, potassium ferrocyanide is not ferrocyanide potassium, but ferrocyanide potassium. Read more

Tata Group, the country’s largest conglomerate, has been battling to dispel a misinformation campaign about the safety of its biggest brand Tata Salt after reports emerged last week that several branded salts in India contain alarming level of potassium ferrocyanide. Read more

“Ferrocyanides are used as anti-caking agents in processing of salt and are safe for consumption. Test reports quoted in media have shown its presence well within limit of 10 mg/kg, as specified by FSSAI. This is less than 14 mg/kg specified by Codex (International Food Standards),” the FSSAI wrote on Twitter.
