Maldon Sea Salt is a completely natural product without any artificial additives, retaining valuable sea water trace-elements such as magnesium and calcium. Its pronounced and distinctive "salty" taste means less salt is required, an advantage for those who wish to reduce their salt intake. The pyramid-shaped salt crystals, characteristic of Maldon Salt, are fragile enough to crumble easily between the fingers and have a totally different taste from regular grains of table salt. The Maldon Crystal Salt Company in Maldon, England has been manufacturing salt since 1882. 8.5 ounce box.
