the absolute rule about salt is " salt is salt is salt" weather it it from land or sea. it is sodium. and sodium is sodium. don't use either on 99% of food. the 1% that makes the food palatable either. they are the same. they are sodium.

Regular table salt is NOT good and I would never use it.I do not add salt to my cooking but use a little sea salt occasionally.Salt is a no no when it comes to hypertension.Iodine can be found in many other sources if you look into it and it is not necessary to get it from salt.

Check the label, but my husband's sea salt shaker says it's not iodized. Iodine is important for proper thyroid function, among othe things.

Not sure why DH likes it. :-)

I use sea salt becuasse it has a better flavor and I really don't us alot of salt. I usually use other herbs to add flavor. It seems to work.

Salt and its nutrients is something our bodies need but its the too much that causes the problem as with anything. Lets face it everything you buy has too much salt. Yes, I found that the sea salts products have as much or more that regualar too. Its the new hype for health gimic.

Well, it still has its natural minerals, but whether they are any big deal..I dunno. And supposedly because it is bigger, you'll use less. Comparing sodium levels on several brands, I saw very little difference..some sea salt was even higher than table salt.

What IS supposed to be the big advantage? I bought some sea salt and was using it cause I was sucked in by Madison Ave evidently.

I love salt but just quit using it. The problem is I don't get thirsty when I don't eat salty foods so I have a hard time drinking enough water.

Good going, Rennagade. This is a great time to explore and learn to love your spice cabinet! Also, lime juice is said to 'hit all the same notes on the tongue' as does salt.

i switched to sea salt because it thought it was better for you. but i now know salt is salt. so i now use red pepper. i never add any salt to anything. it only takes a few weeks to get use to no salt.

I prefer sea salt since it has a more flavorfull taste. Because of that, you don't use as much.
