Yes, You can taste it. Put a little of both in each hand and do a taste test. The table salt is nasty tasting. Try it. Imagine table salt with your magarita. Mad

Of course there's a difference. Sea salt costs more.

I have read that table salt has aluminum in it and sea salt doesn't. Among other things, aluminum is implicated in alzheimer's.

Typical table salt has very small portions of Potassium-Iodide added to it (supposedly to prevent iodine deficiency disease of the thyroid gland) which some people (mostly those selling sea salt! Very Happy ) claim is responsible for rampant hyperthyroidism.

The sea salt craze if fueled by the uber-health conscious folks out there but most of them are duped anyway. Most of what is sold as sea-salt is just as refined and processed as the table salt is.

Edgar, your last post got to it first, but I came to post that sea salt retains trace minerals. I have the cheap-o standard salt to put in pasta water and such, but the sea salt (sometime with and sometimes without iodine) to add to foods.

@dyslexia,
coarse sea salt is best for seasoning meat. Some people use table salt but that is not a good choice.

And then there's kosher salt, which I use instead of table salt. How does it compare to sea salt?

I'll ask this here and see if I get an answer: Is the salt in processed food iodinated?

I like sea salt - because I have these huge salt grinder thingy and you put it in and grind your own salt - it is like you are really fancy and overly too cool.

And I like the taste.

Shouldn't salt be avoided?

@Miller,
i never use it beyond what's already in food naturally or what's in pre-packaged foods

an interesting thing i've found while buying food for the food bank, no name food has way more sodium that name brand, also interesting that canned pasta sauce has more sodium that glass bottled brands (and of course food banks want cans so they don't break)
