Looking for unprocessed salt in its naturally occurring form? We have natural salt for all tastes and preferences, from kelp-enriched salt to sea salt with added herbs, veges and koji for an extra flavour hit. Natural salt contains trace minerals and is less processed than common table salt.
An essential part of our diet, salt consists mainly of sodium chloride. Sodium is an essential electrolyte that works in harmony with potassium which we gain from our diet, especially fruit and veges. When we sweat, and after intense exercise, we lose these electrolytes and they need to be replaced along with water.
Ideally, we want to choose a natural salt with all the additional trace minerals present. Sea salt is made by evaporating sea water or water from salt lakes, and while it contains mostly sodium chloride it can also contain trace minerals such as potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium and small amounts of iodine. We stock natural salt, some with added ingredients including:
- Kelp (Laminariales sp.)
- Koji (Aspergillus oryzae)
