Salt: Pure Real Salt
There is a vast difference in the quality of salts on the market today. A glance at the ingredients label on most salts might surprise you. Many salts contain anti-caking agents and even dextrose (sugar). Others have been heat processed and stripped of their natural trace minerals. Our mined salt is unrefined and full of natural minerals and flavor.
It is an all-natural sea salt that comes from an underground salt deposit in Central Utah. The deposit was left there by a pristine ancient sea that covered much of North America millions of years ago. According to geologists, these salt deposits are the remnant of an ancient inland sea, probably part of what they call the Sundance Sea, which places the deposit within the Jurassic Period. Over time, the salt that settled at the bottom of the sea was trapped within the earth and then pushed up near the surface close to the town of Redmond, Utah.
Because this deposit comes from an ancient sea bed, nature created the salt long before the earth experienced any pollution or contaminants that are troubling our oceans today. The salt deposit begins about 30 feet below the surface, covered by a layer of bentonite clay, which has protected it from erosion and from the possibility of modern contamination.
The flecks of color come from the more than 60+ natural trace minerals which gives the salt its unique pinkish color, unique flavor, and numerous health benefits. The result is a delicate "sweet salt" flavor that you may not have experienced before.
