Why we love cooking with salt flakes
While salt is also used to preserve and prolong the life of meat, fish, dairy products and many other foods, it is, first and foremost, a seasoning that enhances tastes and flavours. By bringing out the natural flavours in carbohydrates, proteins and fats, as well as adding a littel texture of their own, salt flakes enrich the taste of any meal. Whether your recipe call for you to marinate your food, sprinkle salt on your food during the cooking process or on your completed dish at the end, salt balances sweetness and controls bitterness.
