Harvested from the sparkling waters of the Pacific, these sea salts are made by nature & packaged by us. All-Purpose Sea Salt measures like table salt, making it easy to use in all your cooking and baking.
Natural Sea Salt has no additives and is 100% natural. We also offers Iodized Sea Salt, which supplies iodine, a necessary nutrient for the proper functioning of the thyroid
Humans require trace amounts of iodine, a non-metallic mineral, for proper development and growth. It exists in most soils, and is taken up by plants which are in turn ingested by humans and animals. Most of the body's iodine stores are in the thyroid gland, which requires the mineral for synthesis of the hormones it secretes. An iodine deficiency leads to an enlarged thyroid gland (goiter), slowed metabolism, and weight gain, as well as other symptoms of hypothyroidism such as fatigue and intolerance of cold, as well as neurological, gastrointestinal, and skin abnormalities. Iodine deficiency in pregnant or nursing mothers can result in thyroid problems during fetal and child development, and is the most common cause of preventable brain damage in the world.
If you are eating a healthy, balanced, varied diet, you're probably getting enough iodine and don't need to use iodized salt, and can eat non-iodized salt. I myself use both unrefined (gray) and refined (white) sea salt, which we prefer to commercial salts that often have additives I don't like, such as aluminum compounds to prevent caking. Sea salt contains trace amounts of iodine.Features
