Check the ingredients on the package. Some salt substitutes add other stuff to get a better flavor. The one I found was almost entirely KCl, but I don't recall the brand name.

oh, I saw some at home depot... It's sold as Potassium water softener. A 10 lb bag for $17. You'll have more KCL than you'd know what to do with.
