Boulder Salt stirred into water doesn't dissolve completely.  A few particles swirl around and eventually settle to the bottom.  What gives??

The material that doesn't dissolve are the larger particles of magnesium and calcium. It's around 4% of the total. These particles do readily dissolve when they are exposed to an acidic environment such as in the stomach. They will dissolve right away if you keep them agitated/stirred up and drink the water with them suspended in it.

1/4 Teaspoon of "regular salt" weighs 1.5g while 1/4 Teaspoon of Boulder Salt weights 2.0g (more dense). Once this difference in density is taken into account, the 40% difference can be shown. For example: A typical brand of salt shows 585 mg. of sodium in 1/4 tsp. (1.5g). The sodium in 2.0g is given by 585 x 4/3 = 780mg How much less sodium is in Boulder Salt is given by: 780-480=300 300/780 = .385 or 38.5% less (rounds to 40%)
