For four generations, the age-old traditions of the ancient salt workers from Trapani have remained alive here. In the name of work, hard endeavors and respect for the culture of an activity able to shape the identity of an entire territory. Sea salt of Trapani produced respecting the traditional habits and rituals, cultivating and collecting this precious gift of the sea within the Salt-pans Reserve of Trapani which is a WWF area and a FAI.

The unrefined coarse salt has a variable grain size of about 4 mm and is made up of hand-picked crystals inside the salting tank.
In biological medicine, unrefined sea salt is considered to be a food adjuvant because it contains 70 trace elements present in sea water. In addition to sodium and chlorine, in the whole salt there is in fact magnesium and potassium as well as sulphates, calcium and iron.
Equally important for our health but present only in trace amounts, in our unrefined salt we find other minerals such as strontium, manganese, iodine, zinc, fluorides, silver, boron, silicon and copper (to name a few).
The unrefined coarse salt does not undergo any type of industrial processing, it is harvested by hand and air-dried. It is absolutely free of anti-caking agents, but being hygroscopic, it has a tendency to absorb moisture in the air.
