Light Grey Salt (1 lb bag)
Vital Minerals and Exquisite Taste
Light Grey Celtic Sea Salt® is totally unprocessed, harvested in a
time-honored tradition that dates back over 2,000 years. It is dried by
the sun and the wind, retaining the ocean’s moisture and locking in a
vast array of vital trace elements. Light Grey Celtic Sea Salt® is a
coarse, moist salt that gets a light grey hue from the pure clay sole
it is harvested from. There is no comparison, in taste or in health
effects, between mineral-rich Celtic Sea Salts® and chemically-treated
iodized salts. Light Grey Celtic Sea Salt® has a rustic old-world
flavor that is more assertive than other varieties. Try using it in
cooking, for soups and stews, grilling, or grind it with a mortar &
pestle or salt grinder.
The story of Celtic Sea Salt® began
thousands of years ago, when the Celts discovered a way to harvest salt
from the ocean using the sun, the wind, and shallow clay ponds.
Pristine ocean channels spiral water into the concentrating ponds. The
live flowing mixture is carefully stirred by the salt farmer, and
dazzling crystals form and are gathered by hand. The ionizing action of
the clay, combined with the artisan’s skillful method, passed down
through generations, enlivens the unique, bioavailable array of trace
elements that exist in a perfectly balanced matrix. Then as now, Celtic
Sea Salt® is unparalleled in the world. Less than 1% of the world’s
salt harvest has the artisinal quality of Celtic Sea Salt®. Pure,
moist, biologically active, and free from any chemicals or additives,
Celtic Sea Salt® is salt the way it is meant to be. We travel
throughout the great salt-producing regions, hand-selecting only the
best quality to become Celtic Sea Salt®. Each harvest is carefully
inspected to ensure that the salt meets our uncompromising standards of
harvesting, mineral content, taste, texture, smell, color, and crystal
integrity. Only then can it bare the name of Celtic Sea Salt®.
Over time, studies investigating the link between sodium and high blood pressure have produced mixed results. Numerous scientific studies now indicate that a balance of minerals is necessary and more beneficial than eliminating sodium. Nationally known experts such as Dr. Andrew Weil are recognizing that when minerals are fractionated and processed, they undergo a mutation that can result in many health problems. Others, like Esteban Genoa, MD, believe that eating a diet with a natural balance of sodium, magnesium and potassium may actually help to lower blood pressure and promote good health. “I’ve enjoyed using Celtic Sea Salt® for several years now. It enhances the flavor of whole foods and provides me and my family with a superior source of trace minerals.” -Dr. Christiane Northrup, author Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom
Your body uses high mineral salts to create electrolytes. Electrolytes, the sparks of life, carry electrical currents throughout the body- sending messages and instructions to cells in all bodily systems. Electrolytes are also necessary for enzyme production. Enzymes are responsible for breaking down food, absorbing nutrients, muscle function, hormone production and more. Electrolytes and enzymes are also linked to healthy immune function, proper regulation of bodily fluids, and adrenal health.
Also, Celtic Sea Salt® Bath Crystals make a soothing high-mineral soak that many have reported using successfully in the treatment of symptoms associated with arthritis & sore muscles.

Celtic Sea Salt® is under kosher supervision. We have permission to display a Hedsher symbol on the salt labels. This permission is obtained through inspection by a Rabbi, who makes unannounced visits. The Rabbi inspects the facility, with emphasis on the salt room procedures, purchasing documents and cleaning products used. The guidelines for packaging the salt are posted inside and just outside the salt room. Our salt is considered Parve (pronounced par-v), meaning it is neither a meat or a dairy food, but a neutral one. Our salt is also acceptable for use during Passover, a designation not found on many mainstream products.
