Sea salt doesn't reduce sodium in diet

Wednesday, November 7, 2012 by The Press in Social News

Q. I have high blood pressure and I'm trying to cut down on the sodium in my diet. Should I switch from regular table salt to sea salt?

Sea salt is made from evaporating sea water. Table salt comes from underground mines.

Sea salt sounds healthier doesn't it? It evokes images of crashing surf, tanned bodies, and marlin jumping out of the water.

Sea salt and table salt contain the same amount of sodium chloride. Switching won't help you with your high blood pressure. But you're on the right track.
