As its name implies, Redmond Real Salt® is, well, real salt. “Real salt, as opposed to what?” Very simply, Real Salt® as opposed to the “salt” most people unsuspectingly use.
It may surprise many people, but in its natural form, salt is not sparkly white or free flowing. Actually, the “table salt” and many sea salts most people are familiar with have been bleached, refined, and mixed with anti-caking agents and iodine. Many “table salts” also contain sugar in the form of dextrose–meant to cover or disguise an otherwise harsh and bitter flavor. In fact, a quick glance at the ingredients label on most “table salt” products might surprise you! In addition to sodium chloride, you’ll probably find calcium silicate or sodium silicoaluminate, dextrose, and potassium iodide.
By contrast, Redmond Real Salt® is real salt–unrefined and natural–free from any additives or chemicals of any kind. It’s salt exactly the way nature made it!
