How To Substitute Kosher Salt For Sea Salt In Baking
No such thing: Iodine is present in sea water so it's present in sea salt along with hundreds of other mineral compounds. If you object to the taste of iodine then buy regular non iodized salt
My 3 1/2 years old son woke up with puffy/swollen eyes but no pain. He took sea salt & baking soda bath the night before. Could it b the cause?
Puffy eye lid: His puffy eyes could be due irritation from the salt & baking soda, why did use it? But edema of the eyes could be due to allergies also & lf associated with swelling of hands, feet or scrotum it is a more urgent problem. In either case he has to be checked by his doctor or in ER. Good luck
Same effect: Salts that have minor ingredients changing the color, are still basically salt. You can substitute them one for another with the same effect.
Same as salt: Sea salt is simply mostly ordinary salt with a few additives for color and occasionally taste. The basic element is ordinary salt and that is the same as any other salt. Your body needs salt, but not an excessive amount so sea salt should be added as part of your sodium intake.
Marketing: Sea salt theoretically is the salt remaining from collected, filtered and dried sea water. However it would contain a lot of minerals, some objectionable. So it is probably purified salt with some additives for taste and color. The prices I have seen for this are astronomical but marketing deserves congratulations for making something so common, a pricey item.
Red sea salt: Many alternative health practitioners believe that Celtic sea salt, Himalayan sea salt and Hawaiian sea salt all contain natural trace minerals that help balance electrolytes. Red salt from Kauai is infused with alaea, a type of Hawaiian clay. The clay tints the salt red because it contains iron oxide, which serves as an added nutrient. Sea salt naturally contains magnesium and potassium,
Morton Salt: Some does and some does not. Which Morton's salt are you talking about. Some does not contain iodine.
No worry: I don't see the worry. Body fluids are salty. Breathing air with some salt in it is if no concern.
Can you help? Could sea salt actually be better for your health even though it does not have iodine?
Myth: Sea salt is also sodium chloride; it purportedly tastes better; however from a chemical standpoint, its sodium content is exactly like table salt (except no added iodine). The rda for sodium is the same whether you take sea salt or other table salts. And it has the same health consequences when taken in excess like high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.

I have a scan in a few day, can I use morto fine sea salt? It reads "this salt does not supply iodine" thanks
How is sea salt different from table salt, and how does the difference make sea salt better for you than table salt?
Less processing: Sea salt is less heavily processed and therefore has a coarser texture and may have more base minerals remaining in the mixture. Also, table salt has added iodine. I don't know that sea salt is per se "better, " but those pursuing less heavily-processed diets often seek it for that reason.
Dr not sure y. am on lotta meds & 2 med conditions. But my blood sodium always low (125) or so. Would adding salt to food help? Sea salt or reg if so?
Low sodium: That's a really low sodium! You had better find out why. See your doc.
Don't get conned: Remember your high school chemistry. Oh, you didn't? Well, table salt is sodium chloride. Salt crystals are exactly equal numbers of sodium & chloride ions. Every single sodium & chlorine atom on Earth has been here for >4 billion yr, since the planet formed. It's a fundamental principle: Every atom of every element is chemically identical. From seawater or made in a lab, salt is salt.See 1 more doctor answer
