This South African sea salt is a revelation, with its distinct mineral taste and a roundness of flavour. When tasted, the crystals slightly prick the tongue and then dissolve, leaving a flavour nearly as sweet as it is salty – a mysterious and marvellous sensation.

Sea Salt has become the newest weapon in the ever-shifting gourmet-chic wars.  It is an essential prestige ingredient used by our most informed and well known chefs, dusted over a dish at the last minute so that the diner will have the pleasure of the slight crackle and then the delicious melting.

Khoisan Sea Salt is completely pure and natural. The higher calcium content is responsible for a distinctive taste, hence our slogan:  “Once tasted, never forgotten”.

Unlike Industrial Salt, Khoisan Sea Salt does not contain artificial chemicals nor any anti- caking agents as our salts have a natural low moisture absorption.  Our pristine 400-year old brine is pumped from an underground seawater lake (aquifer) and due to siphoning through shell beds, Khoisan’s salt is higher in calcium content and lower in sodium.

For the salt connoisseur there is no question that hand-harvested salt is a superior salt.

Khoisan’s Natural Sea Salts are available in different varieties namely: Fine, Coarse, Pearls, Flakes and Fine Flakes.   All these varieties are traditionally harvested by hand at the Velddrif Salt Works which are dried and packaged directly from the pans, with its mineral content intact.

In addition to the Natural Sea Salt range Khoisan also produces a range of flavoured Sea Salts, fragranced coarse bath salts and distributes sea salt in bulk to the wholesale trade for repackaging.

Khoisan also offers a by-product, namely Gold Dust, which is made from Gypsum and is a registered organic fertiliser that is sold to nurseries as nutrition for sandy and clay soils.
