FAQ



HOW IS OK SEA SALT MADE?

Making sea salt is an ancient art that has been practised for centuries. Production techniques vary depending on the climate. We start by collecting seawater by hand in buckets from a regularly monitored shellfish harvesting area that is 2 km (1.2 mi) from our saltworks. OK Sea Salt is created by evaporating seawater that has undergone three filtering processes, including one that removes microplastics down to 1 micron. To coax the salt crystals out of the seawater, it first needs to be reduced to brine. We use a number of techniques to evaporate seawater at our saltworks. In the summer, we use an array of squat solar ovens, employing passive solar power. In the winter, we freeze our seawater using a process called "brine rejection" and then apply slow, steady heat for the crystallization process. The crystals are harvested at just the right time, resulting in a high-quality product with a bright flavour and dynamic texture.
