“Putting salt on your food is technically just eating rocks”

Salt on food is sometimes described as “eating rocks.”

When we are eating salt, we are eating rocks. #thinkaboutit” was posted on Twitter by Chocolate Goddess on August 22, 2011. “We eat rocks everyday in the form of table salt” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on July 2, 2018. “Putting salt on your food is technically just eating rocks” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on February 9, 2021.


Wikipedia: Salt
Salt is a mineral composed primarily of sodium chloride (NaCl), a chemical compound belonging to the larger class of salts; salt in its natural form as a crystalline mineral is known as rock salt or halite. Salt is present in vast quantities in seawater, where it is the main mineral constituent. The open ocean has about 35 grams (1.2 oz) of solids per liter of sea water, a salinity of 3.5%.

Salt is essential for life in general, and saltiness is one of the basic human tastes. Salt is one of the oldest and most ubiquitous food seasonings, and salting is an important method of food preservation.

Eating rocks sound alien, but putting salt on nearly everything is completely acceptable.

Jesus Christ Marie, they’re not rocks. They’re minerals!

But they form in crystals that look like rock formatiions.

It’s a quote from Breaking Bad. You might also be confused with “looks like” and “is”.

It’s weird that we need to eat rocks to survive but the only tasty one is salt
Like you ever chewed up a calcium supplement? Licked some iron? Not great.
