Is Pickling salt better than refined salt?

Pickling Salt by Morton, is that better than refined salt?

You will need a million dollar yearly income to eat correctly all the proper foods, properly prepared and a doctor's degree in medicine and a laboratory t your disposal to analyze every new idea.


Pickling salt is slightly better than refined salt because pickling salt normally does not contain the additives found in refined salt. I am not positive if Morton pickling salt does or does not contain additives. I am sure you can find out by reading the label.

However, pickling salts usually do not contain minerals. Thus, it is not nearly as beneficial as the natural unrefined salts, such as Celtic sea salt or Himalayan sea salt.
