What is sea salt?
1% of world mineral salts is sea salt from mud flats
Minerals are the four elements that make up the majority of the elements in our body, except for carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen. Minerals play an important role in the functioning of proteins as well as affecting various physiological phenomena such as osmotic pressure control, membrane potential formation, and neurotransmission.
Therefore, if the mineral is not supplied sufficiently, various physiological phenomena are impaired, and it is easy to suffer from diseases such as chronic fatigue, headache, atopic dermatitis, insomnia, and even death in serious cases.
Sinan is one of the five largest mud flats in the world and is the only place producing sea salt. It can be said to be the major producer of sea salts with high mineral content.
Unlike other nutrients, it's tricky to determine how much minerals to intake because there's only a slightest difference between the amount your body needs and the amount that can harm your body. Therefore, it is safest and most effective to eat foods rather than medicines to get the amount you need. In this sense, the sea salt from Korea, the optimal source of minerals, has high scarcity worldwide.
Refined salt, made only with sodium chloride
Refined salt is a salt made by separating sodium chloride (NaCl) from seawater using a special device called ion-exchange resin. Sodium chloride content is more than 99% and the salt almost has no mineral content.
When we say salt in general, it means sodium chloride that contains minerals, not the separated sodium like refined salt.
Natural saltiness can be tasted when eating mineral and sodium chloride together . Whether or not you take minerals together makes a huge difference in taste as well as in health.
Clean, reliable sea salt
Elements in the sea salt production that can affect the human body include heavy metals. For internal inspection, Son Bong Hun Sea Salt commissions a specialized analysis organization every month to inspect and manage the standard values of arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury, which are regulated by the Korean Food Standards Codex.
The quality control team at the company regularly receives hygiene training from specialized educational agencies and manages and supervises producers to produce hygienic and safe products.
In addition, we have applied for a patent for sea salt manufacturing device and manufacturing method to meet the high standards of our customers and produce clean and safe sea salt.
