Australian Murray River Pink Spring Salt
Flake Salt No. 1
Finishing, Table & Cooking - Sea Salt, All Natural
The Murray River is the greatest of Australia's rivers. The source of its water is the snowy Australian Alps. Salt is a natural feature in many Australian landscapes. The Murray-Darling Basin’s low rainfall and high evaporation have combined to concentrate salt in the groundwater.
This salt is produced naturally from the underground brines. A red pigment, carotene, is secreted from the salt tolerant algae. The underground saline waters have been laying dormant for thousands of years.
Australian Murray River salt crystals are light & delicate peach colored flakes. They have a wonderfully mild flavor. The texture is ideal for use as a finishing salt. The crystals melt quickly and evenly making Murray River flake salt ideal for finishing, roasting, and baking.
Why it’s Pink
This pure ancient sea salt contains no additives or preservatives, but is loaded with natural minerals and elements such as magnesium and calcium. These natural mineralized brines give the salt a lovely pink colour, as well as a unique and delicious flavour. Our Gourmet Pink Salt Flakes are enjoyed by food connoisseurs the world over. Place in a small finger bowl and sprinkle over meals prior to eating. Taste the difference!
