At Maine Sea Salt Company, we believe that the cool, mineral-rich saline waters of the Gulf of Maine provide our natural sea salt with its unique flavor.
As the first salt works in Maine in over 200 years, our company brings forward the tradition of harvesting pure and natural sea salt, direct from the source...the ocean! We make our sea salt naturally, through the evaporation and reduction of sea water in solar green houses and shallow pools.
We do not wash or bleach our salt during the solar production process. Therefore, the nutritious trace minerals naturally occurring in sea water are retained in our products. We also do not use chemicals or drying agents.
Our wood-smoked and seasoned salts all begin with the same natural goodness as our original product, and are enhanced with either natural wood smoke, or freshly-dehydrated natural flavorings, such as lemon, scallion, and dulse.
