    Looking at the bulk salt pricing for this year and treated is $17 more a ton. Treated with 10% bi-corn product. Any body have experience with it if its worth the extra cost.

    What's a "bi-corn product"? Is it a "corn by product", like corn syrup? It will help to know what is actually in it, to give you any useful information/advice.

    That would be as opposed to a uni-corn product ;-)

    Depends on how much salt you use whether it's worth it or not. That and how you've priced out your accounts matter too. I generally give two prices for salt that is treated, and salt that is standard.

    The bi-product comes from the distilling/ethanol process. It's a form of gluten/carbohydrate, but basically is a liquid. Ethanol plants describe it their Heinz sauce as it's thick and the consistency of BBQ sauce.
