Sea salt is formed from the natural evaporation of ocean water. It is 98% sodium chloride with trace minerals such as iron, magnesium, sulfur, or iodine. It is different from table salt because table salt does not generally contain these trace minerals. Unlike table salt, which may be mined from land-based sources, natural sea salt does not contain added anti-caking ingredients or potassium iodide. No additives are in sea salt. It is also certified Kosher.
The most notable differences between sea salt and table salt are in their taste. Many cooks like to use sea salt because it is considered more flavorful than standard table salt. Use it as a crust for baked potatoes or in French and Thai cuisine.
Sea salt is often used as an ingredient in cosmetics. It is also used in bath salts, and in facial and body scrubs.
