I have been a Real Salt fan for years.  I use it to season nearly everything I eat.  What is Real Salt?  It is a brand name and a registered trademark of a rock salt mined near the town of Redmond in central Utah.  In 1959, Milo and Lamar Bosshardt discovered this salt deposit.  They began selling the salt to local farmers for their animals.  After their customers demanded the salt be used for everyday use, the company Real Salt was born.  A quick glance at the ingredients label on most salts might surprise you.  Many contain anti-caking ingredients such as dextrose which is a sugar.  These same salts have been heat processed and stripped of their natural minerals.  Real Salt is unrefined and is full of natural minerals.  It has more than 60 minerals, like iron oxide, that gives it its unique color, flavor, and healthiness.  Dr. Robert Young even recommends Real Salt by name in his book on treating Diabetes, “The pH Miracle for Diabetes.”  Christina Avaness said this about Real Salt:  “An excellent source of organic sodium, Real Salt is key to alkalizing, detoxifying and rejuvenating your whole body.”  I originally tried Real Salt in the 9 oz. shaker.  I now purchase it in larger sizes and refill my shaker for table use.  Rainy Day Foods sells Real Salt in several sizes:  a 25 lb. bag, 6 gallon bucket, #2.5 can, #10 can or a case of 12 26 oz. bags.  Since trying it I can’t make myself go back to the processed salts.
