So, what is sal refinada?

Sal refinada, also known as refined salt, is a highly processed food ingredient commonly used for seasoning and preserving food. It is made by extracting salt from underground deposits and then undergoing a refining process that removes impurities and minerals, leaving behind pure sodium chloride. Refined salt is typically finely ground, with a uniform texture that makes it easy to dissolve in liquids and distribute evenly over food. While it is commonly used in many processed foods, some health experts recommend limiting its consumption due to its high sodium content, which can contribute to health issues like high blood pressure.
