Salt is a universally popular seasoning - and Frontier makes it easy with gourmet-quality natural sea salt. Our unrefined, unbleached sea salt is harvested fresh from North French Atlantic coasts and comes in a convenient 5-lb. package.

Salt is the world's most popular seasoning, used both at the table and as a crucial ingredient in virtually every recipe, from sweets to savories. It enhances other flavors, seasons on its own, and provides a necessary nutrient.

Salt (also known as sodium chloride) is the only mineral used as a food seasoning. It can be harvested directly from the ocean or, in the case of rock salt, mined from land. To harvest sea salt, seawater is collected in big trays, and then the sun and wind evaporate the water, leaving the salt. Seawater contains many other minerals, so natural sea salt contains trace amounts of iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc, and iodine. Many find natural sea salt more flavorful than refined table salt, which has had these minerals removed. While natural sea salt has no additives or chemicals, refined table salt generally has chemicals added, like anti-caking agents and stabilizers. Natural sea salt is available in coarse and table grinds, with and without additional iodine.

France's sea salt, known as fleur de sel, or "flower of salt," is said to be the most flavorful. It's also known as sal del mare or sale marino. Many gourmet cooks use fleur de sel to enhance and contrast salty and sweet flavors. Chocolate caramels with fleur de sel is a sublime tasting experience that can't be missed.

Suggested Use

Use salt where ever you need to perk up flavors or add that "missing something" to your dish. Next time you make a pot of pasta, throw in a pinch or two of salt. Professional chefs recommend salting your pasta water because internal blandness can be noticeable even when the pasta is salted afterward or dressed in a sauce. Salt has traditionally been used to preserve foods like cheeses, pickled vegetables and brined meats, and commercial foods rely heavily on its use. A good cook knows how to use salt to enhance a dish by bringing out flavors rather than rendering them "salty."

By the way... Sea salt can also be used as a household cleaner. A paste of vinegar and salt makes an excellent brass and copper cleaner, for example, and coarse salt makes a good scouring cleaner.

Other Ingredients

This salt does not supply iodine, a necessary nutrient.

Warnings

You'll want to keep your salt from absorbing moisture. Store it covered, away from humidity, and toss a few grains of brown rice in your shaker to help keep the salt flowing freely.

Great

We're expats working in Asia and this is hard to find and expensive where we live. We ordered this and we're very happy with it. Healthier than table salt and very fast shipping.

Thanks for your feedback!

We can taste the difference

Posted by Reviewer2959978 on Jun 25, 2011 | Verified Purchase

My family and I found out about everyday table salt and decided we did not want to eat it anymore. I knew iHerb would have what we needed to replace this salt. Once we received the product and tried it, it was an immediate taste difference, and with all the natural benefits, we have also decided we will not be using any other salt.

Thanks for your feedback!

Sorry, Frontier...

To begin with, I have trouble believing that this product is unbleached. It's perfectly snowy white and looks nothing like the Celtic Sea Salt, also from the North French Atlantic coast, that I normally buy. The Celtic Sea Salt is obviously unbleached and contains no anti-caking agents, a claim which this product doesn't make. Of course the other costs a good deal more. The mineral values are also lower in the Frontier product. Well, I suppose it's still better than the completely chemicalized supermarket salt. And I suppose I'll find some way to use 5 lbs. of it! As usual, you get what you pay for.
