New in the Market: Crystal Flake Salt

We love to try new foods. Some are great and become staples in our kitchen. Others don’t measure up. See what you think.

FalkSalt, a Swedish company, has been making crystal flake salt since 1830 and is the number-one brand in Sweden. Now, Falk is available in the US. Packaged in 8.8 ounce plastic containers with a shelf life of 2 years, FalkSalt comes in natural, black, chili, citron, rosemary, smoke, wild garlic, and wild mushroom varieties. Most professional chefs would say if you buy specialty salt, don’t save it for special occasions—use it daily. A one-quarter teaspoon serving has 580 milligrams of sodium, and no calories, fat, carb or protein. If you need to watch your sodium, remember that flake salt and regular table salt are equal in sodium values. (
