Kosher Salt is defined by the large crystals with flat surface areas and its small crystalline structure. Sea salt has smaller crystal structures, but they are larger and more spherical. The larger crystal structures in sea salt are more in a spherical shape and hence it absorbs more water than ordinary forms of salt. Kosher salts have also shown to have better water retention properties than normal forms of salt. This can be attributed to the different crystalline structures in Kosher Salt and its absorption capacity in the body.
