Is your salt real, or is it a highly processed mineral that has no food value left? Is your salt really even just salt? Or is it like this salt, and containing calcium silicate, dextrose, and potassium iodide as well? Btw, dextrose is a fancy name for sugar.
Or maybe you use Sea Salt? Did you know that technically ALL salt is sea salt? Whether it is sourced from today’s ocean or mined from ancient sea beds. All salt came from the sea at one time or another. So your “sea salt” may not be any better than what is shown above. Always read the ingredients!
Today I want to share with you what my grandma uses, what my mom uses and of course, what I use. Real Salt. Salt that is mined from ancient sea beds and minimally processed. This salt we use, contains no sugar, no caking agents and no chemical additives. Instead, our salt contains 60+ trace minerals which make up about 2% of the salt.
Is Your Salt Real? Take the test below:
- Is your salt white in color?
- Does your salt contain more than one ingredient?
If you answered yes to either one of those questions, your salt probably isn’t Real Salt; it is mostly likely salt that has been processed and bleached to the point that there is no food value left.
Here is what Real Salt is:
- 98% Sodium Cloride
- 2% trace minerals
- contains no chemical additives like sugar or anti-caking agents
- mined from ancient sea beds, which means it’s not subject to the pollution that today’s waters contain
Redmond is the company behind Real Salt. They sent me a box of different products to review and share with you. Below are the different containers of salt I was sent.
The large bottle is just Real Salt, this is what I have used all my life. Real salt has an amazing flavor. When we are somewhere else and I salt my food, it just doesn’t taste the same. In fact, it makes my food taste weird or almost fake. When you get used to the real stuff, you just don’t even like processed stuff any more.
Then there are 3 different bottles of seasoned real salt. The ingredients are organic as well. The garlic salt is just garlic and salt, the onion salt, just onion and salt and the seasoning salt is oregano, onion, coriander, mustard, black pepper, paprika, celery seed, turmeric, and parsley.
The onion and garlic salt are nice to have. I usually just mix up my own, but it’s pretty handy to just grab a container from the cupboard and sprinkle.
