Is high blood pressure linked to salt, or sugar?

By | Company, Health | 8 Comments

A certified nutritional therapist, Craig Fear, recently wrote a blog post we liked so well, we asked him if he’d like to share it on the Real Salt blog as well. If you’re into nutrition you’ll want to check out Craig’s website, and if you’re into being healthy (who isn’t?), take a few minutes to read this post!

Why Sugar Will Raise Your Blood Pressure More Than Salt

By Craig Fear, NTP – Certified Nutritional Therapist

To salt or not to salt, that is the question.

According to your doctor, your government, just about every major health organization, and probably your mother (at least mine) salt will raise your blood pressure.  This thinking is so pervasive that it’s taken as a fact by just about everyone.  Read More

Real Salt: The Evolution of a Brand

By | Company | No Comments

As a follow-up to our last post about the new Real Salt packaging, we thought we might show you what Real Salt packaging has looked like throughout the years and answer a few specific questions. This picture shows Real Salt shakers from the early ’80s to today.



The Real Salt look most of you are familiar with was first used about twenty years ago, and it was the first time we included “Redmond” in the logo. We took the word Redmond out in this version, but Real Salt is still owned by Redmond and Redmond still has the same private ownership we’ve had for years.

A lot of you also noticed we removed the word “Ancient” from the label, and wondered if that reflected a change in the way we process Real Salt. It doesn’t. We’re still 100% natural, delivering salt to you just the way nature intended.

If you have a question about our new packaging, go ahead and leave a comment here, ask us on Facebook, or call us at 1-800-367-7258.

New Packaging, Same Real Salt

By | Company, FAQ | 22 Comments



If you’ve seen Real Salt on a store shelf lately, you may have noticed our new labels and packaging. Several of you have noticed and called or emailed to ask if the changed packaging means a changed product.  It doesn’t.  Real Salt didn’t change. The unit sizes didn’t change. The company hasn’t changed. Only the packaging changed.

What Changed?

A lot of customers told us our old logo was hard to read — from a distance it looked a lot like the product was called “BEAL SALT”.  We’re all about REAL and not so interested in BEAL, so we wanted to simplify the logo.  We also removed the “Redmond” from the logo, hoping to keep growing Real Salt as its own brand independent of our parent company, Redmond Inc.

We also updated our pouches and the labels on our shakers. The packaging is similar enough to be familiar to you, but we made them as transparent as we could to show off Real Salt’s unique appearance, and of course they’re sporting the new logo.

What Stayed the Same?

Real Salt is still harvested from an ancient sea bed here in the U.S.A.  It’s still the same product, with the same unique flavor and health benefits you’ve come to expect from us.  We’re still the same company– which is great because we all really love our jobs.

We know change can be a little unsettling and we love to hear from Real Salt customers, so if you have questions or comments about our new look we hope you’ll drop a note on Facebook or contact us by phone or email.

About Redmond Trading Company

Dedicated to Excellence in Products, Service, and Lifestyle

By most standards, Redmond is a very different organization. In today’s business world, many companies exist around the idea that profit is the sole reason for existence and that employees are a means to that end. By contrast, Redmond’s philosophy is that profit is the means, but that the end goal is human development and life enhancement. This is evident in Redmond’s business practices, its commitment to improving the community, and its promise to provide continual growth opportunities for its employees.

…you can explore and search for your passions and unique gifts, work towards becoming the person you are capable of becoming, and make a unique contribution that matters, that truly makes a difference.

We are passionate about our work. We are a driving influence for good with each other. We are trustworthy, proactive, accountable, humble, and courageous. We are loyal  to principle, the company, and each other. And, we live the ideology “good enough never is.”

A strong devotion to these values allows us to fulfill our desire and obligation to serve, to create an enduring legacy, and to be a powerful influence for good in the world around us.

This is the Redmond opportunity.

“You don’t find too many Redmond’s out there. I am in a position now, that if I was offered another job, with a considerable amount of increased pay, I would not take it. The environment here is very positive. I look forward to going to work and being around the people I associate with.”
