Cooking & table salt and its properties

Salt is an essential ingredient in many recipes and dishes, as its properties add flavor and texture to a range of delicious dishes. Table salt is the most readily available type of table salt that is finely ground and finer than the coarse-grained salts typically used to pickle meat or salt tomatoes. Table salt has a balancing effect on the body fluids that are important for maintaining our health. It is also required for most bodily functions such as nerve transmission and muscle contraction, and contributes to our body's overall health by providing essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium that are easily absorbed. Table salt has been used to preserve food for hundreds, if not thousands, of years - a testament to its style, versatility and of course the hopefully delicious results when used properly!
