At the heart of three Middle Eastern seas

Israel, Salt of the Earth’s homeland, rich in resources and tradition, is at the crossroads of three saltwater sources—the Red Sea, the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. The convergence of these wonders of the world known for their value-added mineral infusion and health advantages gives Salt of the Earth varieties decisive quality, taste and personalities all their own.

Purity in process and product

The Red Sea, known for its clear, sparkling water, is the main source of salt for Salt of the Earth’s organic minerals and macro elements. The efficient forces of nature transform seawater into a variety of concentrated sustainable sea salt products. The strong sun and dry air of the Gulf of Eilat promote natural evaporation year-round and require zero human intervention in the process. In fact, throughout the salt-making process, Salt of the Earth relies on the same powers of the world as the region’s ancestors did thousands of years ago.

Diverse product range

Salt of the Earth offers a broad spectrum of high quality products from trusted daily-use table salt to exotic palate-pleasing varieties for gourmet kitchens. Low-sodium salt and specialty sodium-reduction ingredients delight diet-conscious consumers who want flavor in their savory dishes. The company’s newly introduced salt-roasting seasoning mixtures add dimension and diversity to health and convenience, with a sprinkle of indulgence.
