BAJA GOLD SEA SALT
Baja Gold Kosher Sea Salt is harvested at an inland lagoon located in a remote and pristine estuary on the Sea of Cortez in Baja California. Though the Sea of Cortez is anywhere from 7 to 10 million years old, it is considered relatively young. One of the most biologically diverse and mineral-rich bodies of water on earth, the Sea of Cortez remains today a clean and undeveloped waterscape.
As the Colorado River formed the Grand Canyon and continued south through Utah, Nevada, Arizona and California, tremendous amounts of mineral-rich topsoil were deposited into the river delta area at the northern end of the Sea of Cortez. The estuary and lagoon where Baja Gold isharvested was formed over millions of years by sediment from the Colorado River and the strong tides in the Sea of Cortez.
HIGH MINERALS AND TRACE ELEMENTS
Baja Gold Sea Salt is produced from the mineral-rich Sea of Cortez and is naturally dehydrated by the sun. It does not come from deposits found in ancient sea beds nor is it created from super saline “dead seas”.
Sea of Cortez water contains 90 minerals and trace elements typically found in seawater plus more than 50,000 natural organic compounds.
Our salt is harvested by Baja natives who use proven traditional salt-making methods inherited over many generations, guaranteeing its superior quality. Baja Gold is never artificially heated, refined, milled or processed.
Naturally low sodium and high minerals and trace elements content give Baja Gold a more distinct and complex flavor than many other common sea and earth salts (processed sodium chloride).
