About Large Flake Sea Salt
Coarse salt was originally used to kosher meat, or remove blood from the meat, and was called koshering salt. Eventually, some salt companies started labeling the boxes of this coarse salt as Kosher Salt instead of Koshering Salt, and thus a misnomer was born. The result: salt can be called Kosher Salt without actually being kosher (i.e., without adhering to strict Jewish food laws).
Our large flake sea salt is not a certified kosher product.
Chefs love large flake salt because it’s easy to pick up between their fingers, giving them more control over how much salt is added to a dish.
Salt is not a spice. It’s a mineral that’s used as a seasoning.
More about salt:
Salt is a naturally occurring substance, typically harvested from either seawater or salt mines. It’s one of the oldest and most prevalent food seasonings and is essential for life in general.
Of all of the salt produced each year globally, only about 6% is used for human consumption. The rest is used for: product manufacturing, water conditioning, de-icing highways, and agriculture.
