Salt Quality :
Enasel must offer to its customers, products in conformity with food norms and public health being translated by a strict control of all manufacture stages , the use of appropriate salt packing and iodation intended for human consumption, according to international norms (WHO recommendations) and Algerian regulation in force.
The Algerian norm for the food quality salt was published by the National Institute of Normalization and Industrial Ownership (INAPI) on August 20th, 1993 to be later the object of a Ministerial decree of November 30th, 1994 of the Industry and Energy Ministry, published in J.O N ° 41 of July 30th, 1995. It has a reference NA 635 / 1993 and is inspired of the PHARMACOPOEIA ALIMENTARUS norm and the executive decree 90/40 of January 30th, 1990, making obligatory the sale of ioded salt as a prevention against the deficiency in iodin.
Finally the decree 90-367 of November 10th, 1990 relating to labelling and presentation of foodstuffs fixes obligatory mention having to appear on the food products packing.
Iodin characteristics :
Salt the main vehicle of iodin in the organism :
Iodin is an essential trace element in the thyroid gland functioning. This last acts in the growth control and other metabolic functions. To prevent the endemic goiter appearance, we use the cooking salt as additional iodin vector because of the regularity of its use by the human body. Disorders owed to iodin deficiency can be translated by mental delays:Children who are born from an Iodin deficiented mother will suffer from troubles of elocution, audition, mental development delay and from growth complications being leading to Drawfism.
1,5 billion of human beings among whom 700 millions in Asia, 230 millions in Africa, 60 millions in Latin America and 20 millions in Europe have an iodin feeding deficiency (Kiwanis International source).
For this purpose, Algerian regulation makes obligatory the sale of iodised salt for the prevention against iodin deficiency by the executive decree 40-90 of January 30th, 1990. Iodin must be in the form of Potassium Iodate with the following proportions : 50,55 mg by one kilogram of salt at minimum and 84,25 mgby one kilogram of salt at maximum.
