Traditional Hand-Harvested Salt

In the Natural Park of Ria Formosa, situated in the south of Portugal beside the Atlantic Ocean, salt farmers have kept to traditional methods in their salt gathering practices for hundreds of years.

Their skill at working with the four elements, water, wind, clay and sun results in obtaining good salt, in contrast to the heavily processed and refined salt that is not good for you. The "artisans of salt" as they are known, gather it using wooden rakes every fifteen days during the hottest months of the year.

This compound of 84 minerals and other elements that exist in the water of the sea is necessary to sustain life. Salt rejuvenates the body and has innumerable health benefits. It eliminates toxins and helps prevent sickness. It is of vital importance for digestion, stimulates salivary secretion, makes food easier to assimilate while drawing out the nutritional components of foods.

Salt has always had an important role in medicine. It is useful in healing wounds and skin disease, relieving allergies, and balancing the pH of the body. Mineral-rich salt helps the body assimilate only the needed quantity of sodium, actually helping to regulate the body. It is hard to find another complement of nutrients with the same value and richness of minerals than those readily found in unrefined sea salt. "Salt" is good, while sodium chloride alone is not.

So, it is only "common sense" to use unrefined sea salt. Like the great Teacher said, "Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other."

Salt is good - if it's good salt!

Different, in a good way

It tasted unusual at first, but now I crave it. It's good, although I only care about the great health benefits. The consistency was *so* great, mine wasn't wet like other reviewers', but it just looks and feels like something you want in your body!

Good for cooking but too coarse (grainy) for sprinkling on food. Also was very damp and had to oven dry.

I ordered this because my supermarket brands of "sea" salt that are ground fine enough for sprinkling on food all seem to all contain dodgy/toxic anti-caking agents like sodium aluminosilicate(554) or sodium/potassium ferrocyanide(535 & 536). Unfortunately the grain size is too coarse for sprinkling on food and would need to be used in a salt grinder or possibly a mortar & pestle. It arrived even more damp than the other brand of sea salt I ordered which by Eden. I would definitely recommend the Eden Sea Salt product sold here instead as it is already ground fine enough sprinkle straight on food. To dry this salt I emptied the whole packet in a large bowl and put in the oven on high heat, once is was all bone dry I took the bowl out and let it cool off. I placed the dried salt in air tight glass jars. Salt is off white/beige in colour which I associate with natural unrefined sea salt that has a the small portion of other natural minerals. P.S. the advertised "84 trace minerals" sounds unsubstantiated without a certificate of analysis... seeing as the wiki page on Himalayan salt has a link to a German authority that analysed 15 different samples and rather than finding "84 trace minerals" (as often advertised) they found 98% sodium chloride, and in the remaining 2%, the largest number of different trace elements detected was no more than 8.
