IS YOUR SALT REAL SALT?
There is a big difference between the qualities of salt that are available today. A quick look at the labels will sometimes surprise you! Many salts contain anti-caking agents and sometimes even dextrose (sugar). Others are again heavily processed and therefore stripped of their naturally present minerals. Real Salt®, however, is unprocessed and rich in natural minerals and taste as it should be.
According to geologists, the source of the Redmond Real Salt belongs to an old inland sea. This was probably part of the Sundance Sea, so the source can be brought back to the Jura (Jurrassic) era. Over time, the salt has been pulled from the water into the soil and slowly landed at the town of Redmond in Utah.
The source of the salt is characterized by more than 60 different natural minerals that provide the unique color, taste and benefits. Because the salt was created by nature so long ago, the source is located at least about 9 meters below the ground beneath a layer of betonite. This natural sodium clay is so dense that it makes the soil waterproof!
This has ensured that the salt has been able to retain its minerals. In addition, it has remained optimally protected against pollution, erosion and damage. This gives it a big advantage over, for example, normal kitchen salt!
