The idea behind the patented production method of Air Dried AKTAIA Sea Crystals was to make use of natural Grecian resources and promote a healthy lifestyle by starting with one of the most fundamental ingredients in daily nutrition: salt. Recognizing that the common practice of producing sea salt has drawbacks which can affect the purity of the raw material, Aegean Naturals designed a brand-new production method from scratch. The result is a superior sea salt that requires absolutely no further processing. It is the only natural salt that requires neither washing nor chemical processing, meaning it is both low in sodium and retains all of the minerals and micronutrients found in seawater.
The unique drying method used in the production of Air Dried AKTAIA Sea Crystals allows them to be produced all year round, providing a non-stop freshness that enhances the flavor of all-natural and fine foods. The salt is clean and snow-white, with a crystalline sheen to the crushed grains. It has a delicate iodic nose, tasting of the ocean, with a touch of sweetness. AKTAIA Sea Crystals are the product of naturally condensed and crystalized seawater, to be used as daily sea salt.
