In this study, we have investigated structure and impurities of six different salts which have a great importance in our everyday life, namely source salt, Himalayan salt, rock salt, sea salt, lake salt and reduced sodium salt (minsalt) by means of different analytical methods, namely X-ray powder diffraction, scanning electron microscope-energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, inductive coupling plasma optic emission spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectrometer and the Fourier transform: infrared spectroscopy. With the light of obtained results, suitability and performance of the different analytical methods were discussed in some details.
