The first time a student told me “Your salt isn’t very salty,”  I thought WTF?   Since then, several students from Europe and South America have said the same.   They mean regular table salt, not even gourmet salt.  And they are correct.  We’ve tried many different salts, and they all taste different.  I now have salt from France, Greece, Brazil, Chile, and Spain in the house.  

PS:  Our sugar isn’t as sweet, either.

I have a guess:

Here in Brazil they add iode to the salt. We also have “light” salt wich is basicaly a salt with less sodium (and less salty).
And hey, what can you expect from a sugar that comes from beats? just kidding 😉
