This salt is absolutely the best salt there is. My doctor years ago told me this was the best salt because you can use as much of it as you like and you don't have to worry about it raising blood pressure or being bad for you healthwise. I was having problems with fluid in my ear and this is the salt he recommended. I can use as much of it as I like, and I absolutely love it! The person who left a review saying it ruined his food because there was grit in the food, had no clue what they were talking about. Sometimes some of the natural minerals will settle to the bottom of the dish but that is no big deal. It is definitely worth it. The longer you cook something with it the less likely that is to happen because the heat melts the salt in the food throughout. Also the fine salt versus the kosher salt is less likely to do that. That person has cheated themselves by taking such an ignorant, harsh attitude in never using it again. I do respect other people's opinions but he did not leave just an opinion, he was judgmental, and harsh about something he obviously knows very little about. I highly recommend this salt for anyone, especially those with health issues that require low sodium. That is my opinion, not a diagnosis, just an opinion based on my individual doctor's recommendation, and my 20 years experience with this salt. I take it with me when I travel. I won't use anything else. Thank you Redmond for this all natural real salt!
