Are some salts bleached and processed?
Yes, typical table salts such as Morton’s has been heavily processed, bleached and heated. This high heat changes the chemical structure of sodium chloride, transforming it into a state that is no longer natural and different from what our bodies are designed to digest and use. An additive called calcium silicate is then added to prevent clumping. Imparting a “sharper” flavor than kosher or sea salt, the fine crystals are considered *saltier than kosher salt.
