Real Salt is the only brand of sea salt harvested from an ancient, pristine ocean sea bed deep within the earth in a peaceful valley near Redmond, Utah.
Geologists say that the mineral salt deposit that Real Salt comes from is a remnant of an ancient inland sea from the Jurassic era–usually referred to as the Sundance Sea.
Redmond's bring it to you exactly as nature created it – unrefined, ancient sea salt with a complete blend of minerals and a subtle, sweet flavor unlike any salt on earth. Real Salt’s unique “pinkish” appearance and flecks of color come from more than 60 natural trace minerals, including iodine. Real Salt is just 100% real salt. Nothing added, nothing taken away. Simply salt the way nature created it.Ingredients
Ancient Sea Salt
Where does Real Salt come from?
Long ago in what is now Central Utah, Native Americans found a mineral-rich salt deposit from an ancient sea when they saw deer eating the soil. In 1959, farmers Milo and Lamar Bosshardt discovered that this salt deposit extended beneath their land. They began selling the salt to local farmers for their animals and heard reports the farmers were using the salt to season their own food. People insisted this “real” salt be made available for everyday use, and the brand was born. Today we still bring Real Salt to you in its natural state – without additives, chemicals, or heat processing of any kind. Real Salt’s unique pinkish appearance and flecks of color come from more than 60 naturally occurring trace minerals. The result is a delicate “sweet salt” flavor that you may not have experienced before.
Is salt really bad for me?
Salt is–and always has been–essential for optimal health. The human body is made up of 72% salt water and 28% mineral. We need salt and minerals to survive! So, the question is not, “Should I be eating salt?” but rather, “What kind of salt should I be eating?” Because of the additives and lack of trace minerals, most salts are not good for you.
Celtic Salt is produced from the current ocean, while Real Salt has been preserved underground hidden from modern pollutants. Real Salt comes from the USA (Redmond, UT), whereas Himalayan Salt is shipped from one of several mines in Pakistan. Real Salt is mined domestically, which is probably why it tends to be more affordable.
