Why use sea salt versus every day table salt? Mainly, it's the taste. Artisanal salts add texture and depth to dishes. But it's also about your health. As we say at Salt & Olive, it’s not salt that is bad for you, it’s what is ADDED to commercial salt that is bad for you.
Most salts on today’s tables have additives, like iodine, or caking agents, that can add an off flavor to foods, and unhealthy chemicals to your system.The salts that we carry have no additives, and no preservatives like anti-caking agents, or iodine – the ingredients that most store-bought, refined salts include. The majority of the sodium that most people eat comes from processed foods like deli meats, soups, baked goods, cheese and fast foods. Only a shockingly low 11% of your sodium intake comes from adding salt to a meal – the rest comes from processed foods.
