What Kind of Salt Should I Use for Fermentation?
The salt is key to creating an environment where the ferment is protected from spoiling. However, choose your salt carefully. REAL, unrefined salt is a completely different food than the conventional table salt that causes lots of health problems for so many.
REAL salt is a whole food containing trace minerals and other substances our bodies need for optimum health. On the other hand, iodized table salt from the grocery store is regarded by our bodies as poison. Bottom line: Use unrefined, real salt for fermenting. I recommend Real Salt from Redmond or Himalayan pink salt, among others.
