What’s the Story on Sea Salt?

Celtic Sea Salt

Sea salt as you may know originates from the ocean and has been in use since the beginning of life.  Natural sea salt is produced when a portion of ocean water has been contained in huge, shallow, flat beds and then naturally evaporated by the sun, thus leaving a layer of sea salt. The dirty brown part of the salt is on the bottom and contains trace minerals, such as potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, etc.  On the other hand, white salt sometimes called “sea salt”, is on the top and may not have these trace minerals.   Natural sea salt is not white and dry; instead it’s a little grey and feels damp.  Many of the white sea salts sold on the market have a free flowing or anti-caking agent (sodium ferrocyanide) added to the salt to make it easy to pour. Types of salts with this free flowing agent are table salt and Kosher salt. 


There are different natural sea salts with different minerals, thus causing each one to have a unique flavor.2 My favorite sea salt is called Celtic Sea Salt® (the “C” is pronounced like a “k”).  This sea salt is harvested by salt farmers off the coast of France and has 13 minerals with no additives.  The flavor of Celtic Sea Salt is amazing!  This salt enhances any dish that I cook.  Not only is this salt great for cooking, but also it is great for medicinal purposes and is recommended by many doctors.  I have used Celtic Sea Salt to heal my sore throat and mouth sores (i.e. canker sores)!  If you are interested in purchasing this amazing salt, please email info@rhondascooking.com.
