25 Innovations in Salt and Sugar

From Salt Hotels to Sugar-Powered Bio Batteries

— April 4, 2009 — Lifestyle
It's hard to imagine a world without salt or sugar. These compounds flavor nearly every aspect of our world, from denim made out of sugarcane to hotels made entirely out of salt.

The salt and sugar innovations below showcase the wide variety of ways in which these essential seasonings continue to make our world tastier.

Implications - Using everyday items in unexpected ways is a great way to get consumer's interested in your business. No matter what industry you're in, doing something that is unique is always a good thing and doing something unique with an unlikely medium is even better. There is no better time than now to take risks!
