Maybe so but Morton salt is terrible.


Nearly all salts are purified sodium chloride.
Like distilled water or white sugar, it doesn't
matter which one you choose, except for price.

A few salts have various mineral contaminants,
which can give them an off flavor, but not the
big names like Morton or Leslie.


Give me sea salt anytime.

Morton sells sea salt. Even iodized sea salt.

Manufacturers are not required to label how well refined their sea
salts really are. *Some of them are the exact same thing as table salt
minus the iodine (and drying agents). *It just costs $8-$50/lb more
than table salt.

The ones that aren't refined very well have all sorts of other trace
minerals and elements that you don't want in your salt. *Let alone
your body. *Harvesting salts out of any ocean or sea these days is
pretty risky business, IMO.


I trust the Mayo Clinic's web site for medical and general health
information. They may not be right about everything, but unlike sites
like WebMD, they have no ax to grind. Here's their take:
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/sea-salt/AN01142. Here's my summary:
If you prefer the flavor and don't mind paying for it, go for it. If
you think it's worth a premium for health reasons, you've been misled.

I have to limit it these days. Though I just checked my BP and it's
coming down.
