Craft salts are profoundly rooted in the diverse culinary traditions of the food you serve - the ultimate quality, local ingredient. Most are utterly unrefined, ranging from 3% to 33% trace minerals. They come from beautiful places and beautiful people.
Kosher salt is an artificially refined chemical with mechanically processed crystals. Industrial sea salt is no better, refined to 99.8% pure sodium chloride and standardized for global chemical markets. Cheap salt is spun from the industrial maw, an abstraction, a chemical, NaCl. There is no love.
Bitterman Salt out of Portland, OR has a much different approach. Their salts are sustainably made, by hand, and left in their richest, fullest, most natural state. When they say "Flavor First!" we mean everything that flavor brings, from proper nutrition to ethical sourcing to wonderful stories about the people and places where salt is made.
Salt is not just the most powerful enhancer and the quickest and most cost-effective way to make the most of every meal--it is your connection to nature and the people in your life.
