nutritional benefits of tasman sea salt

There is a growing awareness among chefs and foodies alike of the importance of using high quality unrefined sea salt in our food, rather than traditional table salts which have been stripped of all goodness. 

The sea water on the east coast of Tasmania - from which Tasman Sea Salt is harvested - is of the highest quality, meaning that we do not need to clean or rinse our salt in the production production process. Our sea salt flakes therefore retain all the trace minerals and nutrients found in these pristine waters, giving it not only its incredible depth of flavour, but also enhancing the health benefits of the salt. This great flavour also means you need to use less Tasman Sea Salt on your food to get the same salty hit as you would get with other salts. 

Potassium and Tasman Sea Salt 

Tasman Sea Salt naturally contains lower levels of sodium and higher levels of potassium than many other salts on the market. Potassium is one of the most abundant minerals in the human body and is a powerful element in improving health.

The benefits of potassium include relief from stroke, blood pressure, heart and kidney disorders, anxiety and stress, as well as enhanced muscle strength, metabolism, water balance, electrolytic functions, and nervous system.
