Okay, let's define our terms here. By "salt" I assume you mean table salt, sodium chloride.It doesn't really exist as "molecules" since it's ionic.Complicating things even further, "starch" is a polymer/oligomer, and the size of its molecules varies considerably.However, one formula unit of sodium chloride is much much smaller than even a small molecule of starch.
