Salt is salt when it is simple cooking salt. Salt is salt in most cases, as such as this product is too. It is clean, white, refined and tastes like salt. An 'Essentials' resealable bag would be the obvious packaging mistake, and hence it has been transferred to resealable containment device....hint hint. The product is as described on the pack, and is a fair price as well. 1 kg will last the average home ages as we are pushed to consume less and less, so smaller pack sizes would be a responsible next step.
