Different salts

Alice in Canada asked about the difference between sea salt and other salts on the market, like garlic salt, rock salt and the regular salt. There are two main differences – flavour and price. You are still getting sodium chloride, which is 40% sodium and 60% chloride, with the sodium part being the concern when we get too much.

Now, I know there is plenty of hype around different versions of salt, and some may have a sprinkle of other minerals (eg magnesium); just ignore the claims and have a small amount of whatever type you choose.
