What is Kosher Salt?
Kosher salt derives its name from an ancient Jewish set of strict dietary guidelines called kashrut. This sets the rules for the types of food that are allowed to be eaten and their preparation.
One of these rules regarding religious tradition states that eating bloody meat is strictly forbidden. This led to the process of koshering. They used a type of granular salt to drain blood from the meat, as well as to cure it.
Unlike regular iodized salt, this form of salt gently flavors foods, enhancing the flavor instead of simply making the food salty. Additionally, there is no iodine In kosher salt. Iodine has a slightly bitter taste, causing your food to taste saltier than it should.
Its granular crystals also help to draw out more moisture from meats than standard salt. This helps with the caramelization process, also known as the Maillard reaction. When you sear your meat this is what gives it that delicious and beautiful crust.
Bulk Kosher salt helps to ensure your establishment always has the ability to meet the needs associated with bulk spices. Every restaurant and bakery should have bulk Kosher salt on their inventory at all times. Even manufacturers in the food and beverage space should have evaporated food-grade salt on hand in order to create the necessary ingredients and products in bulk.
What is the Difference Between Table Salt and Kosher Salt?
Table salt contains iodine. Iodine has a bitter taste and can negatively affect the flavor of your food, especially when it comes to meats. The bitter aftertaste makes food taste even saltier.
Kosher salt is made from pure sodium chloride and does not contain iodine. This provides a gentle salt profile that enhances the flavor profile of your dish rather than giving it a purely salty taste. That results in a more robust flavor that really pops. Standard salt is typically more refined, as well as being iodized.
Kosher salt is less refined and maintains its profile as a natural mineral. While our evaporated food-grade salt is not iodized, it does contain less than 0.002% of an anti-caking additive, Yellow Prussiate of Soda.
