The sea salt comes from the island of Sardegna, Italy and is enriched with iodine, a necessary nutrient for thyroid health. It is also rich in many essential minerals. Seasonello Sea Salt is generally stronger than regular table salt, which is highly refined. A small quantity will provide a lot of flavor. The Sea Salt is quite fine, so you won’t need to use a salt grinder, and since it comes with a shaker lid, it is ready to use everywhere you normally use salt. The shaker top is found under the lid for ease of use.
