The Mineral Salt - three awards in its first year!

Our condiments, based on scientific research, enable up to a 75% reduction of your daily intake of salt (which is always more than 95% sodium chloride) with no loss of the salty flavour.

'Twice the flavour with half the salt' describes an equal combination of two of Nature's primordial foods in a tasty, nutritious mineral-rich blend of salt and seaweed.

The Mineral Salt, introdued in 2011, is still unique: 50% Seagreens® native wild wrack seaweed and 50% unrefined natural sea salt.

No other salt product has such a complete balance of minerals, trace elements and all the other micronutrients.

The Ruby One was introduced a decade later in 2022.

Manufactured table salt is 'sodium chloride' which makes a good weedkiller.

Natural sea salt is crystallized chloride (60-65%), sodium (30-35%), and up to 3% trace elements.

Rock salt, usually mined from an area once covered by the ocean, is about the same.

A normal teaspoon is usually taken to be 4 - 5g, so a teaspoon of salt will contain about 2g of sodium.

The same teaspoon of The Mineral Salt will contain less than half, about 0.7g sodium.

Consumers attending the Weston Price Foundation Conference in the USA in 2010 described The Mineral Salt:

“Lovely", "Brilliant” and “Just as good as salt & pepper”. The product immediately won 3 awards: Best New Product, Best Organic Product, and Highly Commmended at the Free From Food Awards in London - please click for details.

A full length article explaining which seaweed and salt is better than salt alone was published by Positive Health magazine in October 2017 - click here.

The Mineral Salt is available from the best natural food stores as a 75g glass jar with a shaker top at RRP £7.50.

A 5kg catering opack is available direct from Seagreens Trade Direct - please click here.

Reducing sodium chloride in manufactured foods has been top of Seagreens research agenda since 2007.

Dr Andrew Fairclough, lead researcher at Sheffield Hallam University's Centre for Food Innovation, announced in 2010 that “Seagreens® Ascophyllum nodosum is a potential replacement for salt as sodium chloride and can be used to achieve salt levels below the recommended limit specifically in breads with additions”.

In 2009 Seagreens set up the independent, not-for-profit Seaweed Health Foundation for seaweed research and education.

Obesity research at Sheffield Hallam University, the first project sponsored by the Foundation, won the Alpro Foundation Masters Award in 2010.

Seagreens' founder, Simon Ranger, unravels the myths and mahem in 'the salt debate' in this Caduceus magazine article published November 2010.
