Is coarse salt the same as sea salt?


Answer by  catman529 (809)

It depends what kind of coarse salt it is. It could be coarse table salt, coarse sea salt, kosher salt, kosher sea salt, pretzel salt... there are many kinds of salt and some can be found in both coarse and fine grades.


Answer by  mdfloyd (131)

Coarse salt is usually called kosher salt; sea salt is salt from the sea and is completely different from coarse salt.

Coarse salt is just common salt that has not been ground into the finer salt you are used to purchasing from the grocery store. Sea salt is taken from a sea and can be a coarse grind or can be finely ground, depending on your choice


Answer by  Lordschild (1398)

Not necessarily. You can buy coarse salt that has come from mines or coarse sea salt. It just isn't refined as fine.


Answer by  Penny77 (36)

Sea salt is processed from the sea water. Coarse salt can be from any source, usually from mines in the ground. It is salt that is not ground to be as fine in texture.


Answer by  Shreyansh (236)

Coarse Salt is basically a variety of salt it is usually larger than normal salt or table salt. Coarse Salt's particles are slightly thicker than fine salt. Coarse salt & the sea salt are both same,actually coarse salt is the synonyms for sea salt & the only difference between these two is the different particle sizes.
