Does anyone know about the kashrut status of Maldon Salt? I have heard that salt does not need a kosher certification, but I am not sure if this is true for finishing salts because of the extra process to turn the salts into crystal flakes.
I am aware that "kosher" has dual meaning in the context of salt. I am trying to ascertain the status of Maldon Salt flakes with regard to Jewish ritual law, not it's classification as a type of coarse salt that may be used to remove blood from meat (i.e. Kosher[ing] Salt).
Bonus question: what is the kashrut status Maldon's Smoky Sea Salt Flakes?
