4 things you didn’t know about Kosher Salt


So what’s the deal with ‘Kosher’?

We always hear of Kosher salt being used here and there. Does it make a difference to taste? What is it, anyway? So we’re here to walk you through it! 

1. No Iodine


Kosher salt is not iodized, so if you’re looking to keep out the Iodine, then throw some right in!

2. Less Sodium


1 tablespoon of table salt has about twice the sodium of 1 tablespoon of kosher salt. Woah! 

3. Salty, much?


Kosher salt is coarser than table salt. This means, when the recipe asks for a pinch, you’re actually pinching. 

4. Best for marinades


Kosher salt is recommended for most marinades in various cuisines.
