My Mg is finally A coming to NSW range. AF doesn't seem to want to look up the icp results for my big box of salt I cannot use. I tried looking it up myself. The label does not work on the AF site. I don't think it was icp tested. Why would AF want to keep such high Mg? Scientific based evidence would be helpful.
It's my understanding that AF doesn't mean for their Mg to be high. But it is. Maybe these batches are bad. I have 2 unopened buckets that I might open up to test.
