Noble alpine salts for every taste
1. Raw material natural brine
The salt, once formed by evaporation from the primordial sea, has been protected from environmental influences in the depths of the Alps for more than 250 million years. Pure mountain water dissolves the salt from the rock and then flows into the specially made boiling pans at the Bad Reichenhall salt works, which is why the salt is also known as “pan salt”.
By heating the boiling pan to 70 °C the water of the brine evaporates and salt crystals are formed. As soon as they become dense and heavy, they sink to the bottom of the pan.
3. Skimming the salt
Using a special salt rake, carefully skim off the salt by hand. This requires special experience of the salt-boiler.
4. Dry the salt
The still moist crystals are then spread out to dry in the air. In this way, a pure, handmade pan salt is created in a complex handicraft: the Noble Alpine Salt.
5. A fine mixture
This is now mixed with selected organic herbs and organic flowers and thus z.B. to Noble Alpine Salt Alpine Flowers refined.
6. Carefully filled
After refinement it is weighed and canned. Each can is lovingly sealed by hand. Provided with a tamper-evident seal.
