    Several years ago, my wife came home from work laughing. Her company, the largest in the world, set up a new marketing plan. They took regular salt and put a different label on it and marketed as "Sea Salt." This has not changed in all the years since "sea" salt hit the market. If it makes you feel better, use it. But it is more expensive than the regular stuff. Kosher salt, on the other hand is the real thing and must be certified by a Rabbi. This is what I use. When cooking, if the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon or tablespoon, use a heaping spoonful as the larger crystals add more air to the salt.

      Sea salt actually comes from the sea whereas regular salt comes from a mine. If your wife's company is doing what they are doing, that is false marketing and they should be put out of business. Who are they?
