  • While the era of farming for soda ash is long past, Salsola soda is still cultivated as a vegetable that enjoys considerable popularity in Italy and with gourmets around the world. (wikipedia.org)
  • Salsola soda is native in Eurasia and North Africa. (wikipedia.org)
  • The ashes obtained by the burning of Salsola soda can be refined to make a product called soda ash, which is one of the alkali materials essential to making soda-lime glass, soap, and many other products. (wikipedia.org)
  • The processed ashes of Salsola soda contain as much as 30% sodium carbonate. (wikipedia.org)
  • A high concentration of sodium carbonate in the ashes of Salsola soda occurs if the plant is grown in highly saline soils (i.e. in soils with a high concentration of sodium chloride), so that the plant's tissues contain a fairly high concentration of sodium ions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Salsola soda can be irrigated with sea water, which contains about 40 grams per liter of dissolved sodium chloride and other salts. (wikipedia.org)
  • Salsola soda, and the other plants that were cultivated for soda ash, are "halophytes" that tolerate much more saline soils than do glycophytes, and that can thrive with much larger densities of sodium in their tissues than can glycophytes. (wikipedia.org)
  • The cell of a halophyte such as Salsola soda has a molecular transport mechanism that sequesters sodium ions into a compartment within the plant cell called a "vacuole. (wikipedia.org)
