According to product label, this alkaline salt is best for seasoning. Can also serve as detoxifier – Rinse fruits and vegetables in a liter of water dissolved with a teaspoon of alkaline salt. It came from the sea based from the words “purified ocean pan salt”.
I looked for alkaline salt meaning. It is a chloride of sodium. A substance for seasoning food, for preservation of meat etc…It is found native in the earth. Also produced by evaporation and crystallization of sea water and other water impregnated with particles.
Sea water has a pH of 8. Sodium chloride or common salt is a natural base or alkaline. I never see how this product is different from a common rock salt. It might be different, a company’s trade secret. Please enlighten me!
Why promote alkaline salts? The following were results of my own readings.

This alkaline salt is as salty as common rock salt but different in appearance.
