How does Sea Salt and regular grocery store table salt differ? Sea Salt is produced by the evaporation of sea wasea salt on wooden spoonter. Traditional grocery store table salt is mined like many other minerals. Like mined salt, the production of Sea Salt has been dated back to prehistoric times.

Some folks believe Sea Salt tastes better and has a better texture than ordinary table salt. When the Sea Salt’s coarser texture is retained, it can provide a different feel in ones mouth. This coarser texture may change the flavor due to its different rate of dissolution. The mineral content can also affect the taste of Sea Salt. Different and unique colors, as well as, a variety of flavors can be found in Sea Salt. These differences are due to local clays and algae found in the waters from which the Sea Salt is harvested. Here’s what I mean. France and Korea produce some Sea Salts that are pink and/or gray. Black salts from India are not rare. Hawaii is famous for their Red and Black Sea Salts.

To datsea salt in jute bage, the Science and Medical community have yet to prove a health benefit to using sea salt over other forms of table salts. The Mayo Clinic and Professor Bruce Neal find no difference in the health consequences of ingesting either form of salt. Therefore, the salt of your choice is perfectly fine. Table salt is far less expensive.

Salt is as common on our dining tables in America as a fork or spoon. Our bodies need salt and saltiness is a basic human taste. Find me a recipe that doesn’t include salt and you have an unusual dish to be sure. It is a staple that we all take for granite. So common that we don’t even think about it when we dine. It’s just on the table to use as we like. Too much salt in the diet can raise blood pressure and may increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes. The World Health Organization recommends that adults should consume less than 2,000 mg of sodium which is equivalent to 5 grams of salt per day.
