Traditional Salt

 

Crystallized at the bottom of the pans, (the same pans where the flower of salt is collected). This method of collecting is traditional and occurs every two weeks, the natural salt pans are situated in the Ria Formosa, the salt presents characteristics, evident in the quality, showing the natural chemicals and the purity and brightness of the white crystals.
 

The water of the Atlantic is rich in minerals and resources. The salt is extracted in July and September by ‘Marnotos’ salt workers, using solid wood rakes and collected in piles for drying, then transported to the storage to protect it from the rain and the dust until it is needed for packaging. Again the consumer will have a 100% natural product, for use in conserving meat fish and vegetables and in the manufacture of butter and cheese, also good to use in cooking.
