salty tube sand?

Does anyone know if there is salt added to that "tube sand" that we put in the back of pick-up trucks to add ballast so one can steer on ice and snow? I thought I could mix all this sand from these broken tubes into the Ohio cement-like clay soil to break it up a bit.
I did dump some around our prickly pear cactuses thinking they surely wouldn't object, and the next year they didn't do so well.

(these ones in my photo art were *without* salt)
