Salt is the most consumed mineral substance in human food. This salt is rich in essential minerals and gets its particular taste from the high magnesium (450 mg/kg) and calcium (900 mg/kg) content. Lafina Natural Salt from the Andes does not contain additives, is not artificially dried, refined, washed or recrystallised.
It is supplied to retailers just as nature intended - unadulterated. The salt is harvested by hand from unique salt lakes at an altitude of 3,500 m above sea level in the Argentinian Andes. The sun and wind evaporate the water in open salt basins. This leads to the formation of fine salt with a natural consistency on the surface and also produces larger crystals compared to standard salts.
