Hi, I am making sweet potato fries today. They call for sea salt. Can I just use table salt?

I have subbed this out in other dishes.

Thanks!

You should be able to, sea salt just usually has a different texture and is a bit more intense in flavor, but you'd be salting to your taste anyway.

How about Kosher salt? I've used that...also used Kosher salt mixed with Bragg Sprinkle. It's "24 Herbs and Spices Seasoning."

The only issue with sea salt, that I see, is it won't have iodine added like table salt. You should get iodine from somewhere.

Sea salt is essentially table salt, but the original source was from the sea. Unless is states that it is Celtic sea salt, then the sea salt has be refined and processed and is now the same as table salt. You can purchase iodized sea salt. Table salt and refined/processed sea salt are very bad for one's health. They are lacking all the vital trace minerals that natural salt has. Table salt is almost purely sodium chloride, and can cause high blood pressure, etc. If you want salt that is trully healthy and good for your body try "Real Salt" or "Celtic Sea Salt," which contain the vital trace minerals table salt doesn't and also has naturally occuring iodine.
