Kitchen salt consist of 40% of sodium. There is special ingredient which prevents the formation of lumps. Nowadays producers of kitchen salt add iodine to the packs of salt. They do that to prevent Hypothyroidism.

Rock salt is mined from natural deposits in mines in the form of lumps of salt, without further purification, and then crushed and ground. Its grains are not as small as grains of kitchen salt. On our tables it goes in fine or coarse grained form. Rock salt can be a little contaminated, but thanks to it this salt contains more mineral components such as potassium, chromium, calcium, manganese, copper or magnesium.

Sea salt is acquired in natural process - evaporate of the sea water. Sea salt consist of very important microelements for example magnesium, iodium, zinc, potassium, elenium and lithium. This kind of salt is devoided of chemical suplements. Comparing kitchen salt and sea salt we can say that sea salt has a more distinct taste, so that's way we use less amount of it, what makes it better for our health. Properties of sea salt cause that this is the most healthy kind of salt and we should use it more often than popular kitchen salt.

Flavoured salt is the least popular and least available. It is produced by mixing rock salt with appropriately selected spices and herbs like pepper, garlic, dried vegetables. Flavoured salt can contain flavor enhancers or preservatives, fragrances and synthetic food pigments, and that's why it isn't the healthiest. Because of herbs, this type of salt is added to dish when it is ready to serve to make all delicate aromas noticeable.

Genuine himalayan salt can consist of over 80 minerals, also it is recognized as the clearest salt. We can find it fine or coarse grained form, usually in mills to sprinkle dishes with it just before serving.
