This is indisputable - I have been getting little rocks and sand in this salt for the last 5 or so bags. It is a horrible experience. No, not like getting a tooth pulled, but as far as culinary experiences go, enough to make you lose your appetite.
Imagine scrambled eggs, fluffy, light, warm, perfectly cooked and then the crunch of a tiny stone between your molars, enough for others at the table to hear, or a piece of sandy grit. Imagine getting three bites like that in your meal.
It's not happening at every meal, but it is enough to turn me off finally after months of making excuses for the company (maybe it's a bad batch).
I have tried a mortar and pestle and a newly purchased salt grinder without being able to resolve the issue.
This is unacceptable in a food product. I have been eating food for decades and have never experienced this before. It is only with this salt that it happens. We have used Himalayan in years before Real Salt and never had this issue.
I called the company and they said it "may have come from a location in the mine with a higher mineral count than usual".
I even bought an expensive salt grinder to try and fix the problem. This did not help 100%. I guess a rock is still a rock even if it's smaller.
We will be spending a little more on other varieties instead of buying this anymore. Real Salt has lost a faithful customer of many years.
Your body desperately needs natural salt, but the refined versions most of us grew up with have had all the nutrients processed out of them. There are something like 70 or 80 trace elements in a good sea salt that are essential for your body's health. Under ideal conditions, we would receive these from our food we eat. But in today's world, the soil is depleted of these critical nutrients - so that even if you try to eat good natural food, it no longer contains what you need. So sea salt to the rescue.
Having learned all this a few years back, I bought some Redmond's and gave it a try - and promptly went into shock. I knew it would be good for me, but I still expected it to taste the same as all salt - but it was, "OMG! THIS IS WHAT SALT IS SUPPOSED TO TASTE LIKE??!!!" It was a delightful bouquet of flavors and so satisfying to the taste buds. Even if regular salt wasn't so bad for you, I could never go back just because of the taste - there is no comparison.
And don't be fooled by most grocery store brands - even Morton's sells sea salt - and it tastes just like the same old crap that's been in our salt shakers all these years.
One other tip to try: I noticed another review mentioned that it helps with dehydration. I also found out that if you become dehydrated - it is not a simple matter of just drinking lots of pure water to get re-hydrated. I recently had a health professional suggest drinking a pinch of good sea salt in a glass of water before going to bed at night to help remedy the problem.
I contacted the Redmond company through their website to let them know about my dissatisfaction with the product. They were very kind to send a replacement package along with some samples of a few of their other products, including a sample of powder salt which is not noticeably gritty and will work perfectly for pickling. They were very responsive to my concerns which I really appreciated. The replacement bag of salt still has some grit in it, but I can use this salt for the majority of my cooking and baking where the grit hasn't been noticeable. I changed my rating from 1 to 3 stars because it's good-for-you salt for most uses.
