When it comes to cooking and baking, no ingredient is more versatile than Dead Sea salt. Known throughout history for its healing powers and its overall healthy qualities, the Dead Sea salt is widely used as a culinary and health supplement. Because it contains so much beneficial content, this naturally-occurring sea salt is now considered one of the world’s best natural foods.
All-natural Black Truffle-Infused salt blends the sweet taste of black truffle salt with naturally occurring sea salt crystals to produce an uncommonly sweet, yet extremely healthy, flavor. It is a delectable blend of flavors that is often likened to a melt-in-your-mouth pudding. Although a relatively new entrant in the baking world, this salt is quickly gaining popularity because of its high nutrient value and its delectable, melt-in-your-mouth quality. This sea salt is also known for its ability to help control blood pressure and cholesterol levels. It is also a popular ingredient in certain health supplements due to its rich mineral content.
Truffle, which comes from the flower of an evergreen shrub called the Calabash, has been the inspiration for many different varieties of truffle-flavored treats. In France, truffles were used as an aphrodisiac, while in England, King James II decreed that his subjects were to chew on the salt lick that came off the truffle. The salt is also commonly used in culinary recipes, particularly in cheesecakes and breads. It is also used in the making of candies, although the source is mostly unknown.
Although the taste varies from one locale to another, sea salt is derived from the Dead Sea in Israel. Though there is controversy about the amount of minerals in the seawater that must be present for the salt to be classified as “sea salt”, it is generally recognized that at least 90% of the salt in the ocean is from this sea. The rest is obtained from various other sources around the world.
Salt is naturally distributed in the atmosphere, where it becomes a part of the water system through evaporation. It can also be dissolved in water through chemical reactions without being changed into salt. When it dries up, the moisture is absorbed by the earth and thus replenishes the water levels. Truffle salt is obtained from the earth in that way. The minerals found in this natural resource are great for the health of the body.
Because sea salt contains trace minerals that are good for health, its consumption has become very fashionable these days. Many people love the way it leaves their skin smooth and soft. It is used in many types of food and drinks, particularly desserts and candies, though it is also found in candies and ice cream too. The popularity of truffle salt can partly be attributed to the fact that it is difficult to make. There are many other kinds of salt that are easier to obtain.
Although most sea salts have neutral color, there are some salts which have special colors. Red, black and pink are some of them. These are known as egyption salts, because they change color due to substances emitted during chemical reactions. However, not all sea salts have such colors. In fact, black sea salt is the most commonly available salt in the market and it is usually harvested in the deep oceans.
Most sea salt comes from the oceans, and the harvesting of this precious resource is strictly regulated to preserve it. This special harvesting often disrupts the delicate biological processes in the sea. As a result, the minerals in sea salt are highly unstable and the salt becomes less useful over time. That is why truffle salt has become a precious gem among those who love to eat foods with strong flavor.
