As a consumer, you have every right to know where your food comes from and every right to know what is (and is not) in your food, this is your basic right. We welcome conversations and engagements like these. Though our salts are harvested via traditional methods, rest assured that before the final product makes it to you, there are processes in place, including cleaning of the salts, to ensure that food safety standards are met. Our salts have also been lab tested and are well clear of heavy metals. As someone who has met these farmers and the co-operative that manages them, introducing modern-day food-safety processes to a traditional practice was a difficult but necessary decision. This was the only way these salts can cross borders and reach a greater audience, and therein, keep a salt harvesting tradition alive for another day. In closing, our salts have been lab tested and found to be free from contamination of metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, but are present with minerals such as Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium that are vital for our well-being.
Salt tastefully folks.
