What is the difference between salt and sea salt?

Sea salt has increased in popularity for its crunchy texture and stronger flavor. In addition, sea salt is generally less processed than table salt, and therefore may retain trace levels of minerals like magnesium, calcium and potassium. It is important to note that these minute amounts of trace minerals found in sea salt are easily obtained from other healthy foods.

Table salt, on the other hand, has iodine added, which is important for preventing iodine deficiency. However, there is little difference in sodium content between table salt and sea salt. One of the keys to maintaining a heart-healthy diet is to control your sodium intake, whether you prefer sea salt or table salt. Ultimately, it's a matter of letting your taste buds decide, but keep in mind that both usually contain the same amount of sodium.
