[quote="Papaya"]You might want to try switching to unrefined sea salt. This stuff is grey, not white, and feels sort of damp because it doesn't sprinkle. It can come coarse or fine. It has much lower sodium, so you can eat loads without getting into the risk category. It also has other good stuff - refined table salt has 2 elements, unrefined sea salt has about 83.
Lots of people purposely eat 1/2 teaspoon day minimum. I've switched to it completely and glad I did.
The unrefined sea salt that I've seen contains 90% sodium chloride. Not much lower in sodium than refined salt, so I wouldn't recommend anyone 'eat loads' of it.
It contains other minerals - calcium, magnesium, potassium. But is it really that much 'healthier' than normal salt because of this? I doubt that very much. You will easily get all the above minerals from a good diet. I like salt but other than improving the taste of my dinner I don't think it's particularly beneficial even in its unrefined form.
I noticed that Goodness Direct lists this salt
as 'organic'. Salt is an inorganic compound, a mineral; it comes from neither plant nor animal. How the f*** can it be considered organic
