    Salt is a chemical compound of a base and an acid and comes in many forms. The most well-known, of course, is salt: SODIUM CHLORIDE (NaCl). Different base/acid combinations make different types of salt: magnesium sulfate (EPSOM SALT), sodium carbonate (baking soda), magnesium chloride (road deicer), sodium nitrate (smoke bombs, rocket propellant), potassium nitrate (gunpowder), and so on.

    The sodium in salt is an essential dietary element for humans, animals and even some plants. Natural and unrefined sea salts and mineral salts (aka “rock salts”) also contain trace amounts of minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium, sulfur, phosphorous, bromine, zinc and iron.

    Table salt is chemically refined (stripped of its trace minerals) and is almost always mixed with anti-caking agents which often contain aluminum and silicon.

    I'm a big fan of sea salt (SEL DE MER). The flavour it adds to dishes is delightful. And while there are other salts - Himalayan (pink & black), Hawaiian red & black salts, I'm a sea salt guy.

    Maldon Sea salt is my preferred choice too. It just tastes better than other salts.
