Sea salt versus table salt
Is sea salt better than table salt?
Hi there - The short answer is YES sea salt is better than table salt.
Short answer is that sea salt is mostly unprocessed and "from the sea". The sea water is simply dehydrated by the sun, and the salt that is left makes sea salt.
Whereas regular table salt is very processed, heated, and stripped of all its nutrition.
It's like the difference between brown rice and white rice.
Sea salt does not have as strong of a salty flavor as table salt, so it takes a little getting used to if you are a salt-a-holic.
The ONLY advantage to table salt is that iodine is added to it. Iodine is a very important nutrient we need, even though only small amounts are needed. So if you go the sea salt route, be sure to get IODIZED SEA SALT. xo
