Ditch the table salt and switch to sea salt: Women UK look at Cornish Sea Salt which is naturally rich in minerals and lower in sodium making it a healthier choice over processed table salts. Why?
No added nasties….
Cornish Sea Salt, is a pure and natural sea salt. Importantly it is unrefined. This means that it retains over sixty naturally occurring trace elements such as potassium, calcium and magnesium. These retained minerals and trace elements help to both metabolise the sodium better and maintain a healthy balance of electrolytes in the body.
Lower in sodium….
Cornish sea salt is typically 5 to 10% lower in sodium than processed table salt (it is lower in sodium than most other sea salts too, but that’s another story). This difference is due to the other minerals being present.
Deliciously uncomplicated, Cornish Sea Salt is really salty – delivering far more flavour for much less salt. All those minerals from the clear Atlantic sea give our sea salt a wonderfully intense flavour and you’ll find you don’t use as much when you season your food (which has the added bonus of lowering your daily sodium intake even further.)
Banish the bad stuff…..
The majority of table salt is highly processed with anti-caking agents added (some sea salts use anti-caking agents as well). The production process leaves the table salt with little or none of its original trace elements and minerals – which are essential for wellbeing – but with a number of added chemicals instead which makes it virtually impossible for the body to digest and harsh in flavour too.
Cornish Sea Salt works with the ebb and flow of the tides and take great care of the sea creatures and coastal wildlife in our protected waters. We here at Women UK especially like this.
Taking fresh sea water from the ocean they carefully filter it using pioneering technology that removes all impurities, drawing out only pure salt with the minerals it contains as a saturated brine. They then blend this clever technology with traditional iron age methods by pouring the super salty brine into enormous vats, and gently heat them so that salt crystals gradually start to form on the surface. As the density of the crystals develops the salt sinks to the bottom of the brine. They then hand-harvest it at the perfect moment to get the crunchy texture and intense flavour of Cornish Sea Salt Original.
For the wonderfully delicate Sea Salt Flakes to form, slightly different conditions are required. They spent 12 months innovating and experimenting to create the perfect recipe. Great care is taken to control the atmospheric conditions in the crystallisation rooms where the brine is seeded with an extra helping of sea minerals to give the flakes the environment they need to gather gently on the surface before we harvest them.
Now we think this must be a better alternative to your processed table salt. So Ladies lets get to www.cornishseasalt.co.uk for information on stockists or to buy direct.
