Celtic Sea Salt: Unrefined and Natural Salt
The people at Celtic Sea Salt passionately believe in the value of natural, unrefined salt that is harvested, evaluated, and packaged entirely by hand. Salt has been essential to human civilization since ancient times, and Celtic Sea Salt embraces keeping it just as pure and simple in the modern era. As many as 74 vital trace minerals are naturally contained in each grain of their salt. And coarse Celtic Sea Salt brand salts even have an appealing light grey color. This authentic, unprocessed whole salt has a natural balance of flavors that's distinct from virtually any other salt in the world.
Is sea salt good for you?
Pure sea salt contains trace amounts of essential minerals. While the science is not conclusive about how beneficial these trace elements are to a person’s daily diet, the people behind this brand emphatically believe Celtic Sea Salt provides unique health benefits. The harvested salt is not altered in any way, and even contains some of its natural brine, giving it a unique moisture content. According to the CDC, research suggests that regularly consuming too much sodium increases someone's chance of having high blood pressure. So if you have too much of it, too often, natural sea salt could be as harmful as processed table salt. In general, it's best to enjoy this mineral-rich sea salt in moderation and follow the advice of your doctor or nutritionist.
Types of Celtic Sea Salt
Celtic has offered coarse sea salt and fine sea salt since their founding in 1976. The brand’s Light Grey Celtic and Fine Ground Celtic salts originate from France. Over the years, the company has expanded their product line to include Kosher salts, seasoned salts, bath salts, and even salt for pets! Originally, Celtic Sea Salt was harvested in the region of Brittany, France. Today, each type of salt is harvested from a different location around the world, including Spain, Guatemala, Mexico, and the United States. The high mineral content of these sea salts give them a somewhat unique taste which many prefer over other types of salt. Use Celtic’s coarse sea salt and fine sea salt the same way you would use regular table salt in your favorite recipes — just with more delicious results! This brand of sea salt can also be used as an alternative in certain dishes that call for Himalayan salt.
