Traditional Sea Salt

Often Sea Salt is confused with Traditional Sea Salt tough its differences are easy to identify.

The Traditional Sea Salt is produced in small centennial salt evaporation ponds using ancestral methods. It is a 100% natural process without any processing using only sea water, solar energy and man work.

The natural crystallization process is optimized so that most of the minerals present in the sea water are kept in the salt, making it a more complete salt from a nutritional point of view.
 
After crystallization the salt is collected by hand and dried in the sun for a period of at least five days so that the remaining water evaporates, thus maximizing the percentage of magnesium and iodine present. The whiteness and humidity are unique characteristics of this salt.
 
The productive period of the Traditional Sea Salt is between May and September.
