Natural sea salt mined from ancient sea bed. Contains 50+ trace minerals, including iodine. Professional Chefs Association Best Quality Award. Millions of years ago, the salt in this bag was part of a pristine sea. Long before the earth knew pollutants of any kind, a huge ancient sea covered what is now North America. Pure, natural salt was the main ingredient of this sea. Over millions of years, the water in the sea evaporated, leaving the salt in undisturbed deposits. At some point during the earth's Jurassic era, a range of volcanoes erupted around the ancient sea bed, sealing the salt with layers of thick volcanic ash, and protecting these precious deposits against the pollution that man would eventually introduce into the environment. Near the small town of Redmond, in south central Utah, we carefully extract this salt from deep within the earth, and bring it to you in its pure, natural state without additives, chemicals, or heat processing of any kind.
