    You are incorrect. Unprocessed Sea salt has a different flavor and texture due to the fact that it's unprocessed and contains many minerals not found in table salt (since they are processed out of table salt), and lacks the additives that are put in table salt during processing. Table salt is about 99.9% NaCl, with some additives they put in. Sea Salt has at least 2% natural minerals that are beneficial to the body, and gives it a different flavor. Different minerals are present in sea salts depending on where they are gathered. (different flavors too)

    If you really think "salt is salt", you need to do some research hon. I'd be happy to post some information for you about all the different salts and how they're used if you'd like.

    I don't worry if its organic or not. I don't eat processed food or any kind of junk food, soft drinks, alcohol, cigarettes.

    Nope. Seasalt is much better and stronger. I use it and Kosher salt when cooking. They are not the same.

    Re: Do you eat organic food?

    I don't usually look for the organic label, but I look for a freshness guarantee. When I pick up a vegetable, if it comes from California and I'm living in Canada, it won't be as fresh as a vegetable that was grown in British Columbia, my home province.

    I look for food that is grown locally because it will have more nutritional value, and less of an ecological footprint in its production. Food that is transported across continents unnecessarily uses up fuel and resources that could have been put back into production.

    I wash all vegetables thoroughly with a special soap, regardless if they are organic or not, because there is always unseen dirt and residues from the transportation process. The only exception to that is if I'm washing mushrooms, in which case I just use water.

    EVERYBODY eats organic food.

    ALL food is organic.

    Calling some food "organic" is a marketing gimmick.

    Re: Do you eat organic food?

    It's not a gimmick. The term is meant to represent food that is produced without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. The term has been abused by companies in recent years because both the Canadian and U.S. governments have made laws which say the term "organic" can be used to describe basically all food.

    The laws were updated to prevent the industrial food industry from losing money. It's the same reason why we are not allowed to know which products are GMO or not. People would stop buying.

    Re: Do you eat organic food?

    No, but I do insist on whole grains, brown rice/sugar and meat that hasn't been fed corn instead of its natural diet (grass, etc...)

    Organic is a meaningless term, the above are easy distinctions to determine and are proven better for you. That is not the case for "organic" foods, and most people cannot pass an "organic fruit" taste test. Locally grown vegetables and fruits are just fine.

    I do also avoid processed food, high fructose corn syrup rather than sugar, and basically anything that I am not cooking.
