Real Salt is nature’s first sea salt. During the earth’s Jurassic era, a sea covered much of what is now North America. Over time the water in this sea evaporated, leaving the salt in a vast deposit in central Utah. Eventually a range of volcanoes erupted around the ancient seabed, sealing the salt and trace minerals under a protective layer of bentonite clay. Geologically, the Real Salt deposit has been perfectly protected from erosion and modern pollutants, which is why we’re able to bring you Real Salt today.
