[MedArtSal] How many uses of salt-related products do you know?
When thinking about “salt”, it is very common to first associate it with table salt (also referred to as fine salt) or the coarse salt (unrefined sea salt) that can be both used in food preparation and cooking, coming in different shapes and giving different tastes. Indeed, salt is an historic preserver and flavour enhancer in a wide range of foods. However, it may surprise you, that only about 6% of the salt produced worldwide is used in food.
