So, what is sodium sulfate?

Sodium sulfate, also known as Glauber's salt, is a white crystalline compound commonly used in various industries. It can act as a drying agent, thickener, and flavor enhancer in food production. Additionally, it can be found in personal care products like shampoos, soaps, and detergents due to its ability to form lather and cleanse effectively. Sodium sulfate is also utilized in the pharmaceutical industry as a laxative or in the production of glass, paper, and textiles. While it is generally considered safe for consumption in small amounts, excess intake can cause adverse effects such as diarrhea, dehydration, and electrolyte imbalances.
