Redmond Sea Salt Is Real Salt
Some of you may remember the story we did on Real Salt last year, but because a healthy salt is such an important part of a healthy diet, we decided it would be worth another mention. Some have heard that salt is bad for them, however the reality is that salt is (and has always been) essential for good health. This is why salt is given intravenously in every hospital in the world in the form of saline solution. If salt/sodium was not life essential and was truly "bad for us" it would not be the standard I.V. solution. So we'd like to ask you the same question; is your salt real? Real as opposed to fake? Well, yes. There are many people out there who believe salt is salt. But, is there really a difference? There is.
A quick glance at the ingredients label on most salts might be alarming. Many salts contain additives such as calcium silicate, yellow prussiate of soda (YPS), or sodium aluminosilicate, all used for anti-caking. Some salts even add dextrose, which is another form of sugar. Other salts have been heat processed and stripped of their natural trace minerals. Real Salt®brand sea salt, on the other hand, is unrefined and full of natural minerals and flavor – the way salt was meant to be savored.
Real Salt is an all-natural, unrefined sea salt harvested from an ancient ocean. It is full of natural trace minerals that make it healthy, delicious, and pink in color.
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, Milo and Lamar Bosshardt were struggling to keep their family farm afloat when they 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, Real Salt is harvested 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 many may not have experienced before.
From its modest beginnings in 1976, Real Salt has grown and gained global exposure selling its award-winning sea salt throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Philippines, Indonesia, and New Zealand. Today, the salt mine started by the Bosshardt brothers is more than 200 feet deep and has more than two miles of tunnels.
Real Salt remains the top-selling and fastest-growing sea salt in the natural foods channel in the U.S., according to data talliedby Spins®, a San Francisco-based research firm.
