Dutch liquorice trivia
Salty liquorice does not usually contain ordinary salt (natrium chloride) but 'salmiak salt'. Also known as Sal Ammoniac or ammonium chloride. Salmiak salt gives salty liquorice an astringent, salty taste, akin to that of tannins —a characteristic of red wines, which adds bitterness and astringency to the flavour.
The higher the salmiak salt content the saltier the drop. This drop contains 9.9% salmiak salt.
