So, what is sal de mesa?

Sal de mesa, or table salt, is a ubiquitous ingredient found in most kitchens around the world. It is a naturally occurring mineral that is harvested from salt mines or extracted from seawater. Salt is essential for flavoring food, and it also plays a critical role in preserving food by inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Sal de mesa is typically made up of sodium and chloride ions and is often fortified with iodine to prevent iodine deficiency disorders. This ingredient comes in various grain sizes, from fine to coarse, and can be used for cooking, baking, seasoning, or as a finishing touch to a dish.
