More Info About Our Organic Ancient Pure Salt
We make our desert salt from our licensed salt farm in the mini desert area of Doodlakine in Western Australia. We call it desert salt to distinguish it from sea salt which nowadays is full of micro plastics, sewage, heavy metals and radio active materials.
Our desert salt comes from ancient, clean and pure artesian brine springs which are millions of years old. Our brine has a salinity of around 15% (ocean is only 3% saline) and is much richer in minerals, trace elements and natural acids which give our salt a beautiful distinctive taste. We add no chemicals or nasty additives so our salt is fully organic.
We use only solar pumps to pump the ancient brine into our clay plans so we are carbon neutral and very climate change friendly. We don't have industrial machines trampling on the salt during the harvest and transport of salt, spewing out diesel, oils, tyre contaminants and poisonous fumes.
The salt flakes are made from floating flat salt crystals which are created from the mineral rich brine and the harsh sun and dry climate. The are not saturated in minerals so this salt is mild in taste with a tinge of sweetness to it making it a perfect finishing salt.
On the other hand the amber salt is formed in our red clay pans so some of the minerals from the red clay leach in the salt giving it mild earthy taste. Some of the natural acids in the brine also infuse in the salt giving it a light pleasant sour taste. This salt is a bit stronger tasting than the salt flakes.
Some minerals like magnesium and potassium although they are beneficial they are very bitter and astringent. Many of the cheap industrial salts are over saturated with these minerals and that is why it ruins the food even in small quantities. At Mizzi’s we make sure that these minerals are balanced in our salt making it so delicious that it can be eaten like crisps.
