About

In Western cuisines, salt is used in cooking, and also made available to diners in salt shakers on the table.

Table salt is refined salt, which contains about 97% to 99% sodium chloride. It usually contains substances that make it free-flowing (anti-caking agents) such as sodium silicoaluminate or magnesium carbonate.

Sometimes people also add a few grains such as uncooked rice in salt shakers to absorb extra moisture and help break up clumps when anti-caking agents are not enough to keep the salt free flowing.

Free flowing iodized table salt

There are a wide variety of sea salts and finishing salts available.
