It hasn't in my experience and I have been using this system for quite a
while. I cannot taste the salt. The way I utilize the bag is that the nylon
actually holds the moisture, not the salt. The salt just provides that
little bit of salinity to dissuade the mildew. The air in the Tupperware is
less salty than that of air near the ocean.

What this does for me is to regulate the relative humidity inside the
Tupperware
case. The salt is important in that is keeps anything from growing on the
reeds
(Use rock salt as table salt will not stay in the nylon very well). The
reeds
might taste a little salty, but I have never noticed. In my experience
regulating the humidity this way keeps the reeds from excessive warping. I
also
let the reeds dry table up when I work them to promote the warpage out the
of
the reeds prior to flattening the table and storage in the humidity
controlled
Tupperware thing.

Steve - wonder if that would/could affect your blood pressure?? (the salt,
if you can taste it - your body can feel it is my guess).
Rico makes a humidity bag which holds a constant humidity level. The
"Doctor" carries an anti-humidity canister product (non-toxic and similar to
those which are included in asprin containers) which also works very well to
control humidity.
