You likely eat salt every day. Salt is in the food you buy and in your own cooked meals (you do add salt, don’t you?). What you may not know is that the salt used in these foods or the table salt in your home may be one of two types: non-iodized salt or iodized salt. These salts differ in chemical content, in health benefits and, to an extent, their effects on the flavor of food.
Producers of salt have many different ways of manufacturing salt. Regardless of how salt producers create their salt, the final product, the mineral with the chemical composure of NaCl, is called non-iodized salt. Iodized salt is produced no differently than is “salt.” The main difference in these two types of salt comes from the addition of an iodide or iodate compound. It is only this post-production addition that differentiates salt and iodized salt
It is produced through evaporation of ocean water or water from saltwater lakes, usually with little processing. Depending on the water source, this leaves behind certain trace minerals and elements. The minerals add flavor and color to sea salt, which
also comes in a variety of coarseness levels.
