Salt – the small differences

Salt – the little difference

Basically, all salt comes from the sea. Today, however, the majority is extracted from vast bodies of water such as the Salt Lake City or from underground deposits.

The small differences in salt

Sea-salt: When seawater evaporates, sea salt remains. In unrefined form, this salt contains small amounts of magnesium, calcium, copper and iodine – for this reason it is usually not additionally mixed with iodine. Sea salt is available in different forms and price ranges. Gourmets state that they can perceive differences in the taste of sea salt. table salt: This salt comes from mineral deposits and is mined in salt mines. It is only finely ground, refined and mixed with substances to prevent it from clumping.

iodized salt: This salt is table salt enriched with iodine. Iodine is important for brain development and prevents goiter or nodules from forming in the thyroid gland.

Organic Salt: According to the manufacturers, this salt is obtained from pure water that contains no other additives and should comply with the guidelines for organic production.

In general, iodized salt is perfectly adequate for normal use. Seafood and dairy products also contain iodine, so you should use salt sparingly. Above all, keep in mind that you usually get almost three quarters of your daily salt requirement (maximum 1 teaspoon of salt per day) from ready-made meals in restaurants and canteens.
