  • Korea’s Sea Salt

    Salt is more than just food for survival and health. Most of the salt we consume is chemically extracted salt, offering not much more than a salty taste with little minerals. On the other hand, natural sea salt is a high-quality salt with many nutrients lacking in refined salt.

    Natural sea salt is salt made by drawing sea water into salt flats and evaporating moisture with the heat of the sun and winds of the ocean. Ordinary salt is a refined salt extracted as mere sodium chloride (NaCl). However, natural sea salt is made with craftsmanship through traditional production processes. It is rich in minerals that are good for the health such as calcium and magnesium.

    Shinan-gun’s mudflat, one of the world’s top 5 mudflats, is designated as a clean zone and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Shinan natural sea salt, produced in the Shinan mudflat with its high tidal gaps and global class, is the world’s best natural luxury salt.
