Cheetham Salt Q & A
Q : Is our Salt bleached?
Salt products manufactured by Cheetham Salt are NOT bleached.
Salt (Sodium Chloride) in its purist form is 100% WHITE in colour, the whiteness of our Salt is related to the high purity Salt we produce i.e. > 99.5% pure Sodium Chloride sourced from pristine Australian waters.
People ask this question because they see coloured salt in the market. The colour of pinks, yellows, greys etc indicate additional trace elements & minerals which are present in the salt from either
||its source i.e. mountain rock salt, underground brine solution, or local salt lake/seawater quality, OR|
||introduced during their mining extraction and/or manufacturing process.|
These additional elements should be listed in their product data sheets.
