Why flavoured salt?

Salt is a crystalline mineral containing two elements, sodium (Na) and chlorine (Cl), and it is widely used in all sorts of food preparation. There are so many types of salts to choose from: table salts, Himalayan pink salt, sea salt, kosher salt and many more. They all differ in taste, texture, colour, mineral and sodium content, because they have been harvested from different places. For example, sea salt is harvested using the evaporation method from sea water, whilst other salts are extracted from mines.

There are lots of recipes showing how to make flavoured salts, but not many of them outline the benefits of using them. We have put together a summary of some of these:
