Not all salt is created equal. Ditch the toxic white table salt and make the switch to Celtic.
Why Celtic Sea Salt?
Did you know? Celtic sea salt supplies all 82 trace minerals needed by the human body for optimal health and longevity.
Celtic sea salt is the only salt collected with wooden rakes. This grayish hued salt, it is naturally harvested in Brittany, France, near the Celtic Sea. The location of the Atlantic and the climactic conditions of this region play an important part in the unique mix of sea minerals and quality of salt that is extracted.
When salt is collected and processed with metal, chemical reactions take place and strip the salt from its natural living enzymes. In addition, refined table salts contain harmful chemicals and other processing additives.
That’s why Celtic sea salt is collected with wooden rakes. This 2,000-year-old Celtic wooden rake method is crucial to preserving its life-giving nutrition profile.
Celtic sea salt — unlike table salt, which in processing is stripped of minerals and trace elements except sodium and chloride — contains between 80 – 90 live elements found in sea water and no chemicals or preservatives are added. Among the minerals and trace elements in Celtic sea salt are calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, zinc and iodine — all of which are crucial minerals that our bodies need to function properly. These minerals are what give Celtic sea salt its unique grayish color.
Celtic salt is famous in the culinary world and is considered by many to be the best quality salt available.
This salt is moist to the touch and will retain its moisture even when stored in a cool place for a long period of time.
