Salt.An exploration.

Another subject which has been in the news again this week is none other than Salt and the fact that we are consuming far more of the stuff than we should in our diets. Yes, this is very true for those who consume vast quantities of pre - packaged food or the so called convenient ready meals. These things do contain higher levels of salt than is really necessary (or good for you). However, the reality is that it is not the actual salt that is bad for you but the Sodium Ferrocyanide or the Magnesium Hydroxide Carbonate that is added as an anti - caking agent that is bad for you. So, when buying salt, always check the label to see what it contains. In truth, the only thing that should be in your salt is SALT. To guarantee that you are buying 100% pure salt, with no additives. I recommend buying Maldon Sea Salt or a similar variety, depending on what is available in your region.

The many various types of salt and the following are just a few examples.

Pink Himalayan Salt

There are many types of salt out there, designed for all sorts of uses. Here are a few popular ones that you might want to explore.

Hawaiian Black Salt.

This is so true!

 And you may be interested to now that the word Salary originates from the word salt. This is s a result of he Roman legionnaires were paid in salt as, in those days it was considered to be a highly prized and valuable commodity.
