Ugh. Have always used kosher salt for a lot of things, with the exception of dusting meats (Bretagne, fleur de sel) and fishes (sel gris) with a light crystal or few just before serving. I had thought "kosher" meant no additives could be used, but sure enough, the "free flowing agent" is there in Morton's
, for instance. They list themselves as "the only branded coarse kosher salt on the market," but Diamond
touts the coarse, additive-free texture. Thanks for the heads-up, Sailor.
Edited to add: posted before seeing kosherbaker's post. Kosherbaker, that is Diamond Crystal kosher salt, and as the link above indicates, Diamond claims this salt is additive-free. My only question remains, is the "free flowing agent" not legally considered an "additive," as Diamond states
"kosher salt contains no additives" and yet at least Morton's very definitely contains the free-flowing stuff, though it is labeled "kosher." Confused.
