So, what is a salt?

Salt is a crucial ingredient that is widely used in the culinary world. This mineral is an essential component that adds flavor, enhances texture, and preserves food. While there are various types of salt available, the most common type is table salt. Table salt is a fine-grained, highly refined product that is derived from underground salt deposits. It is primarily composed of sodium chloride, and its flavor can vary based on the processing and added additives. The use of salt dates back to ancient times, and it continues to play a crucial role in cooking and baking today. Whether you're seasoning a savory dish or adding a pinch to your baked goods, salt is an indispensable ingredient in any kitchen.
