Frequently Asked Questions
Why is celtic Sea Salt considered a nutritious salt?
Celtic Sea Salt includes a spectrum of naturally occurring, essential minerals as nature intended. There are absolutely no additives or anything removed from the salt that would alter it. Celtic Sea Salt supplies the body with vital trace minerals and elements, along with a proper balance of sodium chloride (a scientific name for salt).
The brine and minerals, found in this sea salt, are natural electrolytes that give your body a “positive electrical charge”. Your health depends on the abundance of these vital minerals found in Celtic Sea Salt to assimilate vitamins and nutrients to your cells. At Selina Naturally, home of the Celtic Sea Salt Brand, they believe that it is a misunderstanding that “all” salt is harmful to you. Perhaps, it's what's been added to other salts that has an unsettling side effect to your health.
Does Celtic Sea Salt contain Iodine?
Celtic Sea Salt has a naturally occurring, trace amount of iodine at around 0.68 parts per million. Even though it is an important mineral component, their salt is not considered a significant source of daily iodine. However, it is an all-natural, pure source of iodine that is quickly absorbed and stored in your body! Doctors who recommend non-iodized salt for their patients refer them to Celtic Sea Salt brand.
You may want to research the process of how other salts are iodized. A salt labeled as “Iodized” typically means that is was chemically added to the salt, possibly using an additive to bind the iodine to that salt. Thus, it is a misnomer that salt alone is a high source of iodine. Their Celtic Sea Salt Gourmet Seaweed Seasoning contains 350 mcg of Iodine per ¼ tsp. This is their version of a truly natural, iodine rich sea salt.
Does this salt expire?
Celtic Sea Salt will last for an indefinite amount of time without going bad or expiring. Salt is traditionally a natural preservative! Because salt is a mineral, not an organic substance, it does not spoil.
The salt seems wet, is that normal?
Yes, their motto is: “The Secret is in the Brine”! The moisture in Celtic Sea Salt is not water, but rather mineral-rich brine. This brine is lower in sodium chloride and higher in beneficial minerals and elements. There are brine inclusions within the natural Celtic Sea Salt whole crystal. Celtic Sea Salt is alkaline when dissolved in water. Doctors recommend their salt, over other salts, because of the increased bio-availability of the minerals contained in the brine! Their Light Grey Celtic is a coarse sea salt with more moisture, so if you are looking for an all-purpose shaker salt, they recommend their Celtic Sea Salt Fine Ground (derived from Light Grey Celtic).
How does Celtic Sea Salt ensure quality, especially with all the hazards in the environment?
At Celtic Sea Salt, they intensely analyze their salt every year and provide that information to the public, even though it is not required by the FDA or USDA. They fully stand behind the therapeutic value and health benefit of this salt, thus they take great measures to ensure its purity and maintain transparency as a company.
