Table salt verses sea salt - can you taste the difference?
I have switched to sea salt for most of my cooking needs. Other than sweet corn, the table salt has been pretty much abandoned. I find the flavor of sea salt richer and find cooking with sea salt more tangible with its rich texture. Can you taste the difference? Other than the table salt that has iodine, is there a nutritional difference?
I have been using sea salt for some time. I agree that the taste and texture are richer. I use the purest least processed product I can find. I have heard that in addition to iodine, table salt has other chemical residue from processing it to its final "saleable" state.
I do believe that sea salt has a more nutritional value to it, and it does taste richer to me too.
The taste has almost no difference, but table salt is more recommended for its added iodine into it which is needed by the body.

What types of salt do you use in your kitchen? I use kosher salt for most of my cooking and baking. I use various types of sea salt for seasoning stuff at the table. And I like the Real Salt brand sea salt for popcorn.
