Sea salt, which is obtained by evaporating seawater, contains essential minerals that are removed from table salt during the refining process. The sodium and chloride content in sea salt and table salt are similar, but sea salt has larger crystals with more flavor than powdered table salt. Minerals contained in sea salt are in their natural ratios, and this helps keep the body’s electrolytes in balance.
