Salt. The one ingredient that crosses cultures, borders and cooking styles to enhance flavour in both savoury and sweet dishes. It’s quite simply in everything.
Over the years we’ve come to realise that too much of this popular seasoning may lead to health issues and with the typical Scot sprinkling a liberal dash of common white table salt onto everything before tasting, it’s probably good advice!
Sea salt is made through the evaporation of seawater, undergoing minimal processing (if any), which ensures it retains its trace levels of minerals such as magnesium, potassium, calcium and other nutrients.
In addition, sea salts tend to have larger crystal sizes which means they have less sodium by volume. In fact, our friends at Dorset Sea Salt recommend using 30% less of their flakes than you normal would with table salt.
“Due to the world famous and unique geology of the Jurassic coast, our sea salt possesses a distinct mineral profile. Rich with vital minerals, our sea salt is a healthy alternative to table salt which is laden with additives and anti-caking agents.“
A multi award-winning, natural sea salt made entirely from the mineral-rich sea waters of Loch Snizort on the Isle of Skye. We use just the sun and wind to transform it into pure sea salt crystals that have a distinct texture and flavour.
