Honouring the methods practiced by the Romans over 2000 years ago, Clearspring’s Traditional Sea Salt is hand harvested in the Ria Formosa nature reserve on Portugal’s Algarve shores. Large salt pans are exposed to the sun and the dried crystalised salt is harvested by hand using large wooden rakes. It is then transported to the local plant where it is milled, hand selected and packed into bags. This salt is not processed in any way nor are additives such as caking agents added.
The resulting sea salt has a brilliant white, opaque colour but is totally unrefined. Dried only by the wind and sun it is naturally moist, retaining all its original compositional characteristics.
Clearspring is a family-owned business and for over 25 years has been committed to pioneering authentic Japanese specialities and organic fine foods.
