So, what is sal comun?

Sal comun, also known as common salt, is a widely used food ingredient that has been used for centuries. It is a crystalline substance that is composed of sodium and chloride ions, and is found naturally in seawater and underground deposits. Sal comun is an essential component in many recipes, as it enhances the flavor of food and acts as a natural preservative. It is also used in the process of curing meat and fish, and in the preparation of pickles and brines. Despite its ubiquity, it is important to use sal comun in moderation, as excessive intake can lead to health issues such as high blood pressure.
