Sea Salt

I’ve been bogged down by studying. Five finals this week, three tomorrow (Tuesday) and two on Thursday.

Just random, but have you noticed that Sea Salt is in almost everything now? I mean, I like sea salt, I like it better than table salt. It does have the added benefit of Iodine, as found in a lot of things that come out of the sea, but if you’re using it in place of regular salt for health reasons – like high blood pressure – you should know that the body still treats it and recognizes it as sodium.

From the Mayo Clinic: “Sea salt and table salt have the same basic nutritional value, despite the fact that sea salt is often promoted as being healthier. Sea salt and table salt contain comparable amounts of sodium by weight.

Whichever type of salt you enjoy, do so in moderation. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend limiting sodium to less than 2,300 milligrams a day — or 1,500 milligrams if you’re age 51 or older, or if you are black, or if you have high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease.”

You can also read this article on Heart.org on Sea Salt vs Table Salt.

Anyway, just musing over it, as a lot of the snack stuff I just got from Love With Food and Vegan Cut’s Chocolate box has sea salt in it.

My internet went down a hour ago as I was writing this and it’s still down (editing on my phone now sigh – auto-correct I do not love you right now), guess it’s a sign to go to bed. Got to get up early to study some more as it is.

Sweet dreams all!
