Salt is a chemistry/ substance created by the reaction of an acid with a base. It contains elements of sodium and chlorine. Now that all the weird molecu stuff is out the way I can tell you the actall chemical reactions. Salt helps dough hold carbon dioxide gas more effectively. Luckily sugar has no bubbly chemical changes, good I don't want to be apart of that stuff anyway it's weird.
