Sea Salt vs. Table Salt

See also

If you were to look through your pantry right this minute odds are you would have table salt, iodized salt, sitting amongst your spices. Salt is so common we rarely think about it. We just know that to much salt is not good for us but why is that? Table salt has a ton of chemical properties that are not ideal to consume while sea salt is the more natural choice.

Sea salt is obtained by naturally evaporating seawater under the sun. Table salt is mined inland, heated to extreme temperatures and refined with chemicals. Five percent of sea salt equals natural potassium, calcium and magnesium minerals which give it flavor while table salt consists of potassium and sodium iodide. The minerals found in sea salt are readily used by the body as they are naturally occurring. Dextrose, sodium bicarbonate and sodium silico-aluminate are added to table salt for color and to make it ‘easy to pour’.

All in all, the facts speak volumes to say the least. Table salt is bad for your health for reasons. The chemicals pumped into this substance are unreal and half can’t even be pronounced. Sea salt is the natural alternative and tastes just as good. The only question is do you want something ‘easy to pour’ or something that contributes to your health?
