Expert Answer

Salt substitutes vary in their composition, but their main ingredient is always potassium chloride.  For example, the listed contents of the Nu-Salt are: potassium chloride, cream of tartar, drier and natural flavor derived from yeast. Contains less than 20 mg of sodium per 100 grams.   The contents of the NoSalt are: potassium chloride, potassium bitartrate, adipic acid, mineral oil, fumaric acid and silicon dioxide. The ingredients of another salt substitute, not shown here, are: potassium chloride, L-glutamic acid, mono-potassium glutamate, tri-calcium phosphate and 0.01%potassium iodide. The great thing about a low-sodium salt substitute, aside from the fact that it is measurably radioactive, is that people put it on their food!  Not to worry – consuming a salt substitute doesn’t increase your radiation exposure Salt substitutes are radioactive because they contain potassium chloride, and all potassium contains the radioactive beta-gamma emitter potassium-40
