Primordial sea salt
King of Salt is a family-run business from Bad Essen near Osnabrück. (Yes, that’s way west.) Since 2008, they’ve been producing a truly unique salt from the 220 million years old primordial ocean water found around Bad Essen.
Bad Essen’s saline history dates back to the 13th century as notes from the Bishop of Osnabrück confirm – after all, he was responsible for collecting taxes on salt! By modern times, however, the precious saline waters of Bad Essen were relegated to use only in bathing and spa purposes, you know, when bourgeois Germans would go to “take their cure.” A terrible waste, because Bad Essen’s salt is really a one-of-a-kind product. Not only are the saline waters richer in salt than the Dead Sea, but even the resulting salt crystals contain a richness of minerals that are usually lost in the process. King of Salt is completely natural and free of additives. Its spectacular aroma is bound to enhance any dish, in high class restaurants or in your own kitchen!
