This Standard is a revision to GB 5461-1992 “Edible Salt”.
This Standard equivalently adopts TOCT 13830-1984 “Edible Salt”. In this Standard, calculation of
whiteness and chemical index according to wet basis percentage is added; and the limits for
hygiene index are specified according to the raw material, production process and product quality
of edible salt of our country.
Through the revision, the content for Class 3 products of ordinary salt, pulverized salt and solar salt
is deleted from this Standard; and the index for potassium iodate, grain size, whiteness and part of
the chemical composition parameters are adjusted.
This Standard replaces GB/T 5461-1992, from the date of implementation.
This Standard was proposed by the National Light Industry Bureau.
This Standard shall be interpreted and managed by the Nation Ocean and Lake Salt
Standardization Center.
Drafting organizations of this Standard. National Ocean and Lake Salt Standardization Center, and
National Well Mine Salt Standardization Center.
Main drafters of this Standard. Liu Zhida, Chen Sujuan, Zhang Nengjun, Wang Zhibin, and Fu
This Standard was issued for the first time in October, 1985; revised for the first time in June, 1992;
and revised for the second time in December, 1999.
Edible Salt
1 Scope
This Standard specifies the technical requirements, test method, inspection rules, package,
marking, and transportation and storage requirements of edible salt.
This Standard applies for edible refined salt, pulverized washing salt and solar salt.
2 Normative References
The articles contained in the following documents have become the articles of this Standard after
they are cited herein. For the dated documents so cited, all the modification list (excluding
correction) or revised editions made thereafter shall not be applicable to this Standard, but all
parties who have concluded agreements on the basis of this Standard are encouraged to study the
possibility to implement the latest version of these documents. For the undated documents so cited,
the latest version shall be applicable to this Standard.

During the calculation according to the sequence numbers, if certain compound can not be formed
owing to absence of the anion or the cation, then the calculation can be conducted with the next
sequence number to fill-up the vacancies in the proper order. The calculation result shall be counted
to the third decimal point; and take the second decimal point.
When the percentage sum of inspected compounds and insoluble matters, moisture (the value
determined by loss of weight during baking plus the residual crystal water; or determination value
during burning at 600°C) is 99.5%-100.40%, the analysis data is deemed as valid.
For residual crystal water after baking of the edible salt at 140°C, the calculation is made based on
that 1/2 crystal water is contained in calcium sulfate; 1 crystal water is contained in magnesium
sulfate; 2 crystal water is contained in magnesium chloride; and 2 crystal water is contained in
calcium chloride. For residual crystal water after baking of the edible salt at 110°C, the calculation
is made based on that 1/2 crystal water is contained in calcium sulfate; 2 crystal water is contained
in magnesium sulfate; 4 crystal water is contained in magnesium chloride; and 2 crystal water is
contained in calcium chloride.
6 Inspection Rules
6.1 Group-batch
The products that are manufactured with the same-process; of the same-grade; and delivered in
same-time are deemed a group-batch.
6.2 Before shipment of edible salt products, the inspection department of the production plant (site)
or the sales department shall carry out inspection lot-by-lot according to this Standard. When the
inspection is qualified, the quality certificate shall be attached inside (outside) of the package; then
the product can be dispatched.
6.3 Sampling method and quantity
Conduct according to requirements of GB/T 8618.
6.4 The quality of edible salt product shall be based on the quality inspected upon delivery. When
there is dispute on product quality between the supplier and the purchaser, it shall be entrusted to
the arbitration organization by both parties for inspection and judgment according to requirements
of this Standard.
6.5 The quality deviation between the net mass of the edible salt product package and the indicated
mass shall conform to the requirements of the “Prepackaged goods metrological supervision
regulations" issued by the country.
6.6 If one of the indices in the inspection results (or two indices of grain size, whiteness and water-
soluble matter) can not conform to requirements of this Standard, then the standby-samples that
are same-lot as the sampled products shall be conducted for non-conformance items. If the retest
still can not satisfy the requirements for the lowest grade of that category-product, then the products
of this lot shall be deemed as unqualified.
