Quoted from SusieD
i use sea salt, does that change the degree of satisfaction to "saltiness" when used as opposed to regular salt?


I enjoy my sea salt more than regular iodized.  After eating sea salt, than iodized salt has a nasty chemical aftertaste to me.  My sea salt does have iodide in it, but only a fraction of what's in the regular salt.

Since I discovered how different sea salt is/tastes from "table" salt, I don't restrict its use, but don't feel I overdo it. It makes me nuts when people want to season their food without even tasting it first!!! Rant over. Sigh.

Some types of sea salt have so much flavor you don't have to add a bunch of seasonings to your dish.  The bleached sea salts taste more bland to me than the colorful ones.

I'm a tad late to this poll, but I'm a secretor and I love salt. I can't eat eggs without it.

I totally ignored salt until I started BTD--then I fell in rapturous L-O-V-E with Pink Himalayan Sea Salt.

This has more to do with being a taster nontaster or supertaster.

I crave salty  (and crunchy) food at night - between dinnertime and when I go to bed.  

I wonder if it's thyroid but a recent test said "it's normal" - many thyroid tests are inaccurate though.

I know that salt makes me retain water and wish I could go minimum but food doesn't taste good without it.

I can't take Bladderwrack because even that makes me retain water.

Alfalfa is a natural diuretic and helps with water retention, but I don't know if Os or Gatherers can take it.  My book is on loan.

I don't crave salt on a regular basis, but once in a while I want something crunchy and salty or salty-sweet, probably because I'm menopausal.

We use Celtic sea salt most of the time. I like the pink Himalayan salt too and use it for barbecue and pan-frying, it's delicious!

I have not tested secretor status but I believe I am secretor. I have not voted too. I somehow has a feeling that I can do without salt. I have on occasions taken food without salt for quite some days. When the cook forgets to add salt now and then on some food, I never ever complain and enjoy it without salt rather than add salt later.

I used to be a Doritos freak, I could down a whole family size bag in one sitting.
I needed the salt and they do taste soooooooo good
That was before I started using ancient sea salt

Mmmmm - salt, salt, salt - bring it on whoo-hoo!!

First vote as a nonnie and have always loved savoury/rich foods over sweet anyday!  My partner also (in the old days before BTD/GTD) loved to pile salted cashews and potato chips down his gullet like each and every morsel was the last of their kind. - Bless  !

Hi,

I think I am a nonnie but not tested yet ; I did not vote.

As a child I liked salt, but was not craving.
Later, at school and in the industry, never added salt, and often forgot salt when cooking.

These 3 last years I was said to think put salt in the water when cooking ! I tried to think... better and better   mostly because I read something about the balance between sodium and potassium, and I used a lot  organic cider vinegar (it help me to warm my cold hands and tooth in winter).

Now on the diet, with algaes (fucus vesiculous harvested in Norway, 10g/day)... again, I forgot the salt !!!
   Worse ! I feel sick when chewing those salted pumpkin seeds !!! (I remove the salt with hot water   )

those salted pumpkin seeds have dextrose in the mix.....try avoiding those, buy raw unsalted and and toast yourself instead.

You'll have to split those seeds open to get at the good stuff.  There is one kind of pumpkin I've read about that doesn't have a thick coating on the seed.  It grows naturally without it.

I think especially nuts and seeds are nice salted, made even nicer if some spices are added. I like salt, but am not crazy about it

I got my blood tests back last Friday.  I had them & a urine test done because I thought my low temperature might be from thyroid, but I have a low sodium level.  Well that explains why I crave salt even more lately.  I’ve always craved salt, but it has been worse lately.  The ND thinks the large amount of caffeine I drink all day long has affected my adrenal glands.   So guess who has to drastically cut down on her caffeine consumption.  As my glands heal, let’s see if my salt cravings decrease.

I voted..a secretor that does not need salt! Give me sugar instead...or pepper that I cannot have!
I enjoy cooking with Camargue Fleur de sel (southern France) after I have tasted...
I cook with more fresh herbs from my garden than anything else.

I noticed it is mostly BT O that wants the salt....my best friend is an O that is completely dependent on it!
