The difference is that iodine is added to table salt and cornstarch is also sometimes added to make it pour better. Other salt also has different shapes. For instance I use Diamond Crystal kosher salt. I have to almost use as much as double the salt in some recipes because of the shape. There just isn’t as much salt in a spoonful as the smaller shaped table salt. And the crystals are also flatter so they are good for curing meat as they lie flat on meats and such.
