Flossy SaltWed, 3 Jul 2019
Culpepers’ Flossy salt is a general purpose coarser grade of salt that is used in processing meat and general food production. Salt is a mineral but it is considered a seasoning and is used to add flavour to food.
Salt is essential to life so we must have salt in our diet. Too much salt can lead to higher blood pressure and other problems so regulating the amount of salt you consume is important. We only need about 6 to 8g of salt per day so don’t overdo it.
The discussion on cooking salt vs flossy salt vs kosher salt vs rock salt vs salt flakes is very interesting. There are numerous opinions.
Oddly, I seems that Culpepers’ rock salt, Culpepers’ Salt Flakes and Culpepers’ Flossy Salt can all be referred to as “kosher salt” due to the larger grain size.
Culpepers’ Lake salt is a table salt. Its finer grade makes it easy to dispense from a salt shaker onto a prepared meal.
True Kosher salt should really be called “koshering salt”. It is from the Jewish culinary custom of removing the blood from the meat before it is eaten. Kosher or coarse salt is more efficient at extracting blood.
This is different to Kosher Certified salt. Certification of salt by an authorised Kashrut inspector ensure that the salt has been prepare using Jewish food preparation guidelines. It is deemed to be "Kosher".
At the end of the day, after the salt has dissolved they'll all do the same job and taste pretty much the same.
Culpepers’ flossy salt comes from Australia and is now available in a 1 kg bag on the Culpepers’ website www.culpepers.net.au
