    Sea Salt has some exquisite flavours thanks to the activities of the fish that live in said sea.

    There's a lot of market BS in all kinds of products. You can buy an expensive 500g bag of rock salt or sea salt marketed for bathing in to treat various things, or you can buy a 20Kg bag of salt for use in a swimming pool for less money. Both are salt with an anti-caking agent added, both are safe to swim in, what's the difference? Some will try to argue there is one, there isn't.

    Sea salt is made by drying out sea water. So, the cheap rock salt sold in markets comes from the underground salt mines. The more expensive sea salt that we find in gourmet shops comes from the sea. Chemically, there’s not much difference as they are both more than 99% sodium chloride.

    According to National Geographic, “microplastics levels were highest in sea salt, followed by lake salt and then rock salt.”


    So there you go, your trendy healthy fashionable salt has some yummy plastic as well.

    Yes of course Roscoe, as you say.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche
