Beware of False Sea Salt Labels!

Beware of “Sea Salt” Products Labels!

On the labels of many packaged foods, in supermarkets as well as health food stores the name “sea salt” appears often. Naturally, we feel safe and reassured, thinking that when it comes to the salt part of the ingredients, all is fine…

But all is not fine. You have been duped!

From the manufacturer's label: Dry, refined salt (sodium chloride) suitable for human consumption. Produced in Australia by solar evaporation, harvested and refined in accordance with good manufacturing practice, under a HACCP Quality System that complies with the Australian Food Standards Code J2, 1993.

This supermarket or health food store “sea salt” has been totally refined. At its origin, it may have come from the sea, but:
It has been harvested mechanically from dirt or concrete basins with bulldozers and piped through metal conduits;
Put through many degrading artificial processes;
Heated under extreme heat levels in order to crack its molecular structure;
Robbed of all of its essential minerals that are essential to our physiology. These elements are extracted and sold separately to industry. Precious and highly prized by the salt refiners, they bring much more profits than selling the salt itself.
Further adulterated by chemical additives to make it free- flowing, bleached, and iodized.

To call the leftover of such treatment “sea salt” is simply misleading. To make it worse, harmful chemicals have been added to the processed, altered unnatural substance called “table salt” now, to mask and cover up all of the impurities it has. These added chemicals include free flowing agents, inorganic iodine, plus dextrose and bleaching agents. Commonly, the standard salt additives are:

  • Potassium-Iodide  (added to the salt to avoid Iodine deficiency disease of thyroid gland),
  • Sugar (added to stabilize Iodine and as anti-caking chemical),
  • Aluminium silicate, a poison incriminated in Alzheimer’s disease.

This particular manufacturer, has not been singled out – just one of the many, peddling their salt to unsuspecting customers, as a pure sea salt. Buyer beware!
