What's the best salt out there?

What's the best salt out there? Obviously plain salt is plain salt, but I mainly mean the regional sea salts where there's local minerals mixed into it too. Are any of them actually good or is it all a meme?

      Yeah stuff like Tavira salt, or Cornish sea salt. Does it actually taste different, is it worth trying?

        I use Maldon daily and also to pre-season my seafood dishes before cooking, and put it in/on my ice creams, sweet whipped creams, and desserts. It has a balanced flavor, and not acutely salty on the pallet before dissolving into subtler flavors. A few months back I bought Jacobsen salt. It wasn't as good, and I found it to be too strongly salty for my pallet.

    Fancy salts are a huge waste of money.

    I prefer iodized salt. Iodine is essential, and the sodium chloride is otherwise pure.
    For all I know, there could be feces in those fancy salts. Sea salt is also just as mysterious, although it most likely comes from desalination plants. Or nuclear reactors. Who knows?

      Anon, industrialized salt is made through pumping brine into vast shallow open-air pools.

      There's shit in it. There's shit in all salts. I'm sorry to break it to you.

        Hahaha... that has to be an AI generated image. There's no way that is true.
        Salt is manufactured by mixing pure sodium with pure chlorine. Everyone knows this.

        do you think the salt industry gets most of its salt from salt flats and evaporation? the vast majority is mined

    Why would I tell you?
    You clearly don't know what you're doing when it comes to salt, and I'm not about to have a bunch of good salt wasted by someone without the skill.

      So in other words, you also have no clue.

              The second best salt is Garlic Salt, although minced garlic with iodized salt added to it works also. Third is Lawry's Seasoned Soap (good for seasoning cast iron pans).
              I don't really see much value in paying extra for "dirty" and impure salts. At least iodine has a use.

    The pink Himalayan salt seems to have a little etang, but it's probably psychosomatic.

      How much of this stuff is left? Surely, it will not last forever. I expect the price to increase manifold in the latter days of remaining supply. Ofc, by then, perhaps meme salts will go out of vogue.

    Noniodized salt. If you eat a varied diet you'll get plenty of iodine from other sources and your salt won't have the strange taste iodized salt gives. You want ideally a coarse salt, and you want to get an idea of how much salt is in a pinch of your salt so you don't have to measure while cooking.

    I am pretty sure that, scientifically, there is no difference to any of these salts.

    But I am equally sure that science is a load of demoralizing, devaluing, material-deterministic hogwash and that the human experience is as, if not more, important to our continued survival and growth. And I'm not even just talking about "the placebo effect". I believe that every unique thing we do on this earth and every novel experience we have creates modes of perspective and emotional state, that enable new and vibrant living thought patterns that contribute to the range of further experience and ideas we're capable of attaining in the future. "Science" has lost its luster; adhering to only what can be discovered in a carefully controlled peer reviewed study filters the perceptions of humanity into a grey goo of clinical meaninglessness. I believe it is necessary, even paramount to re-embrace creative and magical thinking, not necessarily because they are "true" but because the more diversity of thought that exists, the safer the overall "gene pool" of ideas remains and the more likely that unique and novel groundbreaking solutions and discoveries will be discovered by people who haven't been indoctrinated to think only in one box. And even something as seemingly insignificant and trivial as enjoying different types of salt may be part of that way of experiencing the world.

      I don't mean that everyone should believe X instead of Y, quite the opposite, it's actually to our benefit if we all believe many different things (where appropriate- certain cultural traditional standards are important in small enough closed systems), and that some of our ideas succeed and some of them fail. The last thing science should be doing is trying to force everyone into the same box of "one and only truth". It's brought us very far out of the realms of disease and darkness, I don't deny that- save only that we've reached a tipping point, we've conquered most of our old biological foes now and we need to realize, for our own future, that it's possible to take even a good idea too far and lose something in the process of aligning ourselves to it unquestioningly.

      tldr try the salt, it's good

      are you fricking stupid? do you think colors are some metaphysical force precluded from "science"? yeah if you don't understand science at all and just use it as a buzzword I suppose it'd be demoralizing
      minerals have taste, especially in raw in-processed forms that might appear in salt. there is NO QUESTION that wild salts taste different from processed fine salt, the discussion that's worth having is whether that is a noticable, worthwhile, or even desirable difference(it isn't, spend your money elsewhere)
