salt

  • See also celtic sea salt and himalayan rock salt
  • There is also a page for seaweeds
  • Avoid mono isolated refined salt. If you eat any pre-packed foods you are probably overdosed on this.
  • Do go for a full spectrum unrefined salt so that you get all the minerals!
  • There are four basic sources for salt.
  • Sea salt traditionally produced by evaporating seawater in the sunshine.
  • Seaweeds naturally contain some salt and other minerals.
  • Plants contain some salt in varying degrees.
  • Rock salt, especially Himalayan Rock Salt.
  • Salt can also be manufactured but this produces something that is mon-refined and would not be found in this form in nature.
  • Sea salt or rock salt can also be processed and have various chemicals added to make it free running. Sometimes charcoal is added to keep it running freely. Don't be too surprised if the charcoal is animal based.
  • Seaweeds are a great source of other minerals as well as salt. Dried seaweeds can simply be ground up in a seed grinder and the resulting powder used as salt. This will impart a little seaweed taste to whatever you are making. They are great for salads, salad dressings and similar. However the seaweed taste is not suitable for everything.
  • You can also buy powdered seaweeds.
  • Where salt is required without a sea vegetable taste, I use either Himalayan rock salt or a sea salt.
