Aztec Sea Salt

I just read an article about the benefits of Aztec Sea Salt. It also stated it is being produced north of PV. On the internet it is quit expensive. $25 per half pound plus shipping. I figure this might be a question for JR. Has anyone seen it for sale in PV? If so, where and at what price.

For me Sea Salt seems like such a fad.

We were recently at Gordon Ramsey's Steak in Vegas and of the six courses we had 4 had some sort of Sea Salt on it.

To me, it was just salty, in bigger clumps.

It actually worked the best with the bread and butter.

Don't know about the Aztec part, but I bought a half-kilo bag of some from the Sea of Cortez for next to nothing, like maybe a dollar or so. Maybe at Ley's? Mega? Also along the road to Sayulita are people selling it from their yards, like roadside produce stands here in the US.

As far as clumpiness, try a pepper grinder.

Not sure about 'Aztec', but Carmen at El Arrayan was selling a specialized salt, called Flor de Sal

"For me Sea Salt seems like such a fad. "

It is....salt is salt....to a certain degree anyway.

If you get all your salt in 'sea salt' form, you may be lacking in iodine (which is added to 'table salt'.) It's best to use both of them - to make sure you get all the mineral benefits from the sea salts and the iodine from the processed salt.

And stay away from those overpriced 'Himalayan salt lamps' and their false claims...no they do not 'purify the ions' in the rooms they are in....pseudoscientific hogwash, pfffftht.

Pure salt is pure salt. It's a chemical compound of sodium and chlorine. There may be other trace minerals in Aztec salt or sea salt as opposed to mined table salt, but I doubt that they are of any benefit other than the placebo effect on some and the enrichment of people who can convince us otherwise.

exactly, Chuck!

The 'extra, unpolluted (haha!) minerals' you might get from sea salt are minimal and the claims mostly bogus. :)
