Salt (sodium chloride) is required by the human body for the regulation of fluid balance.
Salt comes either from salt mines or from the sea. Table salt is a fine-grained refined salt with additives and typically iodine (sodium iodide). Kosher salt is additive-free and coarse-grained. Sea salt is the type used through the ages and is the result of the evaporation of sea water — the more costly of the two processes.
Because the body requires a balance of minerals for optimum health and blood pressure, be sure to choose a high-quality, mineral rich sea salt - such as Himalayan Sea Salt, Real Salt or Celtic Sea Salt for any recipe that calls for salt. This salt is contains a unique mineral profile of calcium, potassium and magnesium and is preferred by chefs across the world for its clean taste and superior culinary results.
