The 100% sea salt seal guarantees its natural origin, sustainability, contribution to the conservation of traditional trades and its capacity to generate biodiversity, certified by AENOR.
How is sea salt produced?
The seawater enters the sea saltworks and passes through a circuit of ponds. Thanks to the action of the sun and the wind, the water concentrates and increases its salinity, until salt is formed in the ponds that we call crystallisers. When there is an accumulated layer of salt we harvest it, usually towards the end of summer.
In this link you can learn more about the production of sea salt.
This distinctive, which you can find visible on the packages of sea salt, encompasses all the benefits of this process:
The raw material we use to produce salt is seawater.
We use natural sources of energy, the heat of the sun and the wind, to evaporate the water and concentrate it until the sea salt crystals are produced.
Thanks to the activity of the sea saltworks, traditional trades such as the “aguatajos”, also known as “canalero” or “guardabalsas”, have been preserved.
The production of sea salt generates a wetland that is home to hundreds of birds, fish, plants, crustaceans and micro-organisms.
Some species that you can find in the natural landscapes that make up the sea salt flats include:
Flamingos, seagulls, eagles, harriers, cormorants, herons, stilts, ducks, plovers, terns, terns, avocets, sandpipers, spoonbills, glossy ibis…
Sea bass, sea bream, mullet, smooth, fartet…
Various species of frogs
