Delicious--But No Iodide!
on April 4, 2014
This salt is delicious! I can use half as much as my normal "table salt" and it is very strong. Just a little sprinkle is more than enough to fully salt most dishes. I also enjoy the coarse texture. Unfortunately--and I should have read the fine print before purchasing--this salt does NOT contain iodine, a necessarily supplement.
Iodine is only added to a select few table salts these days, and that is a shame because we need it. Iodine helps to regulate our thyroid, prevent cancer, kill pathogens, and it has a host of other health benefits as well. Iodine is only found in salt rich foods, like seafood, seaweed, and kelp (to which I say--yuck!) so for the most part many folks get their iodine solely from salt.
If you don't have an iodine rich diet and/or aren't taking an iodine supplement, I highly recommending buying a different salt brand with iodine added. If you're already taking a supplement (like me), or have an iodine rich diet, than don't hesitate to buy this product. It's simply delicious, and so flavorful I imagine the bag can last me a year or more!
