From the crisp waters off the southern coast of Australia to clay-lined salt ponds in France and mineral-rich salt deposits deep within the Himalayan Mountain range in Pakistan, sea nd mineral salts are sourced from across the globe using a
variety of harvesting techniques. For food manufacturers,
processors and grocers, the explosion in popularity of these
all-natural salts with consumers is driving a switch from chemically refined salt, and bringing about a new focus on the safety
and production of natural salts worldwide.
Depending on their harvesting environment, natural salts inherently contain traces of foreign materials, like sand, shells, rocks,
or other insoluble inclusions. While not harmful, these elements
can be unwelcome or problematic for many applications. To ensure
the highest quality, safest food-grade sea salts possible, some processing is required to remove this undesirable matter.
