Seagreens Mineral Salt
Seagreens® Mineral Salt provides twice the Flavour, with half the Salt content! Seagreens Mineral Salt is a unique combination of Organic seaweed from Seagreens’ sustainable harvesting in the Scottish Outer Hebrides and Soil Association certified sea salt from the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, England. This 50/50 mix of Ascophyllum nodosum wrack seaweed and unrefined salt provides a healthy condiment option - no other natural food has a complete balance of minerals, trace elements and micronutrients. Consumers responded enthusiastically to its introduction at food and health shows in the last quarter of 2010: “lovely flavour”; “just as good as salt & pepper”; “fantastic value”.
Seagreens Mineral Salt ProductThe Hebridean Seagreens factory won the 2010 Crown Estate Marine Enterprise Award and Cornish Sea Salt won a Gold Food Award. Replacing sodium chloride in manufactured foods has been top of Seagreens research agenda since 2007. Cornish Sea Salt, located in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Scientific Interest, is the only British salt producer returning sea water back to the ocean as sea water - not distilled, which can adversely affect local salinity. The white, flaky salt crystals are produced in a Soil Association approved state-of-the-art, eco-friendly harvesting facility using low energy output, rainwater collection, laminated timbers and a marmolium-clad interior with inherent antiseptic qualities (limestone). Fresh sea water (Grade A, the highest purity standard) is pumped some 8 metres to a 3-stage bespoke filtration process and heat evaporation to concentrate the salt. The salt crystals are harvested and the water, less only 0.5% salt, trickles back to the sea at ambient temperature, through a natural fault in the rock face. Seagreens Mineral Salt also enhances the nutritional value of our food, and brings out it's flavour.
