Hub-Pak’s edible salt is marketed under the name of Hub Salt and is the only brand of salt in Pakistan that is 100% soluble, making it the only brand that is pure sodium chloride – free of any harmful particles that contribute to build-up of gall stones, bladder stones etc. Hub-Salt is used in numerous food related industries like bread making, confectionery, bakery, cereals, butter and cheese, pickles, spices, etc.
In bread manufacturing, the salt decreases the rate of fermentation by stabilizing the wheat gluten. It helps to modify enzyme activity in cheese production by acting as a starter in the culture of micro-organisms. Salt also provides suitable conditions for fermentation in pickles by helping control microbiological and pyrogenic growth.
Hub-Salt also produces an exceptional quality of Fleur De Sel. Fleur De Sel is a unique and rare type of salt produced in different coastal areas of the world.
Hub-Pak also manufactures and does research on fortified salts. Fortified salts include:
Iodized Salt has many health benefits. An estimated 20 million people reside in endemic goitrous areas in Pakistan. These people can be victims of goiter and suffer from different forms on Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD), unless they take precautions. Iodized salt is used for the prevention of goiter. Goiter can lead to mental retardation, which has a negative effect on one’s performance. Use of iodized salt is considered the easiest and the cheapest source of Iodine.
Fluoridated Salt is fortified by adding measured amounts of Sodium Fluoride in dry salt. Our in-house quality assurance guarantees that the production of Fluoridated salt is up to the mark according to our TQM programs. This salt is beneficial for oral health, since it prevents tooth loss and decay. Proper intake of Fluoride can help us in the prevention of such diseases.
Simple table salt has a great number of uses. Double Fortified salt with Iron and Iodine is available in two grades at Hub-Pak. This idea of double fortification was conceived by those researchers who have been researching on this activity for well over 20 years. We have developed the process and now double fortified salt with Iron and Iodine is available in two different grades.
