Reasons for the organoleptic properties
Kalahari salt is free from additives and external environmental pollutants, and as rock salt, one of the purest in the world. The distance to population centers and a hostile environment have preserved this salt for millions of years. Indigenous peoples initially used this underground deposit with very salty water. They kept this place secret and thus created a mysterious aura around this place. Only in recent years have the natives made a strong commitment to dismantling and marketing the product.
Salt production in the Kalahari desert
The salt is produced using the following procedure. The groundwater contained in these natural deposits is very salty. Every morning, employees pump the water into so-called salt pans that are above ground. During the day, due to the scorching African sun, the water evaporates, and the salt crystals remain. Only once a month, when all the liquid has evaporated, do they collect the salt and bring it to the packaging system.
