The Difference Between Sea Salt and Regular Salt

The Difference Between Sea Salt and Regular Salt

January 22, 2023

Sea salt and regular salt may look similar, but they are quite different in terms of taste, texture, and nutritional value. My Fabulous Food offers a variety of luxury sea salts that are of high-quality, unrefined and minimally processed, that can elevate the taste of your dishes.

Regular salt, also known as table salt, is mined from underground salt deposits and is heavily processed to remove impurities and minerals. It is then mixed with anti-caking agents to prevent it from clumping. This processing removes many of the beneficial trace minerals and results in a uniform, fine texture. Regular salt also contains added iodine, which is an essential nutrient that helps to prevent thyroid problems.

Sea salt, on the other hand, is made by evaporating seawater. It is unrefined and contains many of the beneficial trace minerals found in seawater, such as magnesium, potassium, and calcium. It also has a coarser texture and a more complex flavor than regular salt.

My Fabulous Food offers a variety of luxury sea salts that can take your dishes to the next level. From Hawaiian Alaea sea salt, to Black Lava sea salt, and many more, each salt has its unique taste, texture and nutritional value.

In cooking, sea salt can be used as a finishing salt, to enhance the taste of dishes and bring out the natural flavors of the ingredients, while regular salt is mainly used as a seasoning ingredient and to control the saltiness level of the dish.

In conclusion, while both sea salt and regular salt will provide sodium to your diet, sea salt offers a more complex flavor and an added nutritional value, due to its natural mineral content. My Fabulous Food offers a wide variety of luxury sea salts that can elevate the taste of your dishes, make sure to try them out!
