IMO the only place for table salt is in salt dough or to dye. Was just round a friends and she was seasoning a "home made" soup and poured a load in. I did my best not to raise my eyebrows but seriously even a bit of bog standard Maldon is cheap enough.

I have 6 different salts in the house, and to me table salt is not for food, no depth of flavour or hints and tones, just pure sodium!

I prefer NaCl from VWR grin

If table salt wasn't for the table, they'd have called it something else......

Anyway, what kind of person has 6 different types of salt hmm

I only have table salt in the house and it very rarely gets used.
I don't cook with salt of any kind, I just use stock and herbs and spices etc for flavour. My cooking doesn't seem bland and flavourless and to be honest I didn't even know 6 different salts existed. I know theres table salt and sea salt but that's it, I would never make a chef!

If it's not Himalayan and pink, I'm not interested smile

I have 13 different types of salt for everyday use. 17 for fancy. 21 for guest. And 89 for fancy guest. YABU you fucking heathen.

Surely salt is salt?

Mind you, the stuff I saw in the Vendee last year was grey and looked like the bottom of my washing machine. Sticking to table salt.grin

YABU, chips without salt is like bread without butter. They just go together.

You'd hate my kitchen/cooking habits, not only do i use table salt, but it's damp too and I have to give the tub a good smack to get any out. I'm such a peasant.

I saw pink rock salt in poundland the other day. Even though it was in poundland I thought "What kind of snob buys this shit".

I use Lo Salt. <ducks>

sunny I was given the grey french stuff as a souvenir. I don't dare to open it...

You do actually need salt in your diet. Most of us eat too much, but a few people eat too little, and it's not great.

I hear what your saying about pink himalayan salt but we have stopped using it I'm my house due to the ethics of using a Pakistani product, all the news recently about religious laws has inforced this.

You could try Korean oyster bamboo salt as a replacement smile

TheHermitCrab Thu 05-Feb-15 18:02:16

ToysRLuv I tried lo salt years ago, it fizzed on my tongue. Is it still that grim??

dhdjdbrjrkbr Thu 05-Feb-15 18:03:30

You table salt lovers do know its a high ly processed product where it is stripped of all its minerals just to leave you with pure sodium and nothing else. Not good for you like this
