We all know that a bit of salt and pepper seasoning can enhance the taste and the overall experience of eating your food, but were you aware that using manual salt and pepper mills to freshly grind your salt and pepper is actually much healthier than using pre-ground variations?
Here are 4 reasons and benefits why you should always choose to freshly grind your salt and pepper
Salt and pepper lose a lot of their potency after being ground due to being oxidized. Salt has been gathered directly from marshes and rock salt for centuries, to keep the flavours as much to their original (un-oxidized) state as possible.
