Not All Salt is Created Equal

Where would we be without Salt?

– James Beard

Gucciardo Sea Salt from Trapani, Sicily, is the maximum expression of sea salt. It is harvested by hand and it is totally raw. It is unwashed and unbleached, an absolutely beautiful salt.

Next time you have the chance, try a pinch of your supermarket table salt side by side with a pinch of sea salt. You’ll taste a world of difference inside those tiny salt grains. Table salt is often fortified with other ingredients like iodine or anticaking agents. Sea salt, on the other hand, contains naturally concentrated minerals from the sea. That’s what changes the flavor, consistency, and nutritional value of your salt.
