I am looking to replace the salt shaker in my house with a "Salt Grinder" type salt shaker and would like any freeper suggestions on what brands or types of sea salt may be the best as well as any warnings on what I may want to avoid.
Here is are some of the per-requisites that i would like with my salt grinder.
1. The Sea salt Must contain Iodine 2. The Sea salt Must contain Selenium 3. The Sea Salt MUST be free of any heavy metals or toxic metals.
I have heard good things about Himalayan sea salt and other "pink sea salt"
Just wondering if any fellow freepers have any suggestions or have done the research.
With this type of Salt in it:
Would any salt brand work or is there a "better" brand out there?
Don’t tell Bloomberg.
Must contain Iodine? Why
There are plenty of other sources.
I buy the Hain brain with iodine, but I don’t know about salt with selenium. I know that’s supposed to be good for your thyroid.
Crystal Diamond salt (yes that’s a brand name). They have several different versions including iodized.
If you were to user kosher salt (really describes a salt with a specific shape not a religious salt) in preparation of your food (and it doesn’t take a lot to bring out flavors) then you wouldn’t need to use this grinder stuff on the table (except maybe for salads or raw foods)
The mccormack grider is a mother to refill. I’ve tried it. It is plastic too so it was made to be disposable.
Can you afford it on your salary?
sea salt is dirty salt. makes you twice as thirsty...there’s a reason you don’t drink sea water
“Can you afford it on your salary?” I like your “Play on words”!
I get my sea salt and many related products from http://www.saltworks.us/
I usually buy the bulk products, but I’ve purchased some of the retail gourmet salts as gifts.
I love that site!
Needed for thyroid gland to avoid goiter.
I like the Himalayan pink salt. It’s an ancient sea salt deposited that’s been protected from pollutants. The stuff they ‘mine’ from the ocean can contain stuff you don’t want.
Check out gourmetnut.com
Don’t know about the iodine, but there are other sources.
“I have heard good things about Himalayan sea salt”
Hmm, Himalayan sea salt. Gotta go check a map on this....
Its all good. Just buy some. We have 3 different kinds.
Can you afford it on your salary?
How do you know how much I make?
Fast forward to today when some bureaucrat addressing the complaints of kids on the tastelessness of government approved "healthy" school lunches and the suggestion that maybe...they just needed some salt, said (and I quote): YOU CAN'T GIVE SALT TO CHILDREN!
I wonder how long it will take for goiters to be commonly seen again? Iodine is found in other sources but I wonder how many of those are actually on the school menus (seaweed, baked potatoes with the skin, tuna packed in oil...).
I digress - the pink salt from Costco is wonderful and looks pretty in my grinder.
Sure, but there are other & better ways to get iodine. Food for example
Seaweed (including kelp, dulce, nori)
