    Hello,
    I am under the assumption that your white sea salt has more iron in it than the grey?
    Is this so. Would like to know the percentages of iron in these products.
    Thank you.

    Thank you for your question! All of our salts are unrefined sea salt, with nothing added and nothing removed. The Celtic Sea Salt® Brand Makai Pure® is a Hawaiian deep sea salt with more nutrient density than any other salt on the market (including our Celtic Sea Salt® Brand Grey Celtic®).

    Thanks for the info. What about the radiation from Japan. It is being found in many bodies of water like off the coast of California. Is this effecting Celtic Salt in any way.

    I use Celtic Sea Salt but it doesn’t have iron as far as I have knowledge of. My iron is always low so I have to use a supplement.

    Hi Judith, thanks for your question! All of Selina Naturally® sea salts are laboratory tested for radiation at the time of harvest. What sets us apart from our competitors is that we also have state-of-the-art laboratory testing equipment in-house that we use to do a second radiation test on each batch of sea salt when it arrives in our production facility. Because our salt is double-tested for any radiation exposure, you can rest assured that all of our salts are laboratory tested radiation-free.

    I am considering drying out the light grey course salt as described on your website, so I can use it in my salt grinder; however, will the salt lose some of the minerals when the water/brine evaporates?

  8. Ian G says:

    Hi Chris, that’s a great question! If you follow the instructions on our website for drying your salt using very low heat, an insignificant amount of mineral content should be lost. However, we do carry several grinders powerful enough to easily grind our Light Grey Celtic® with the brine intact. We would recommend either the Salt and Spice Mill or the Kyocera Ceramic Grinder.

    Hello,

    Why is it that this sodium content contains more sodium than other salts? it shows here in the nutrition label (as I do currently use this product) that it has 20% sodium per 1/4 tsp. I understand that Celtic sea salt has more benefits but also why more sodium? Sodium is “supposedly” to fall under the category of bad nutrients, therefore you should limit yourself by using the 5/20 rule. 5/20 rule meaning bad nutrients like fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbs should be 5% (roughly 10%) and good nutrients being more than 5% (so 20% is good for good nutrients) whereas 20% is bad for bad nutrients. I would really like to know more about celtic sea salt and why it contains more sodium as it states in the ingredient list that there’s only sea salt.

    Thank you

    Hi Tina, our response is a little too long for a blog comment, so I just sent you an email. However, the short answer is that all Celtic Sea Salt® varieties all contain less than or equal to the amount of sodium in other unrefined sea salts, and significantly less sodium than either mined salts (like Himalayan) or refined salts. Please feel free to reply to my email or call 1-800-TOP-SALT if you’d like to discuss this further. Thanks!
