Salty taste is found in any salt (such as sea salt and rock salt) and sea vegetables. Salty taste is found in foods to which large amounts of salt are added (such as nuts, chips, and pickles).
Salty taste has a drying quality in the mouth and tends to deplete reproductive secretions. AN excess of salt causes graying and wrinkling.
