Learn the Story Behind Bamboo Salt

Korean bamboo salt is made in a most unusual way. Sea salt is dried in the sun, then inserted into bamboo trunks which are carefully sealed with yellow soil and then roasted over in clay furnace at a temperature of 2,500 °C. This process is repeated up to eight times. Each roasting increases the pH of the salt. The end product is a very alkaline salt that can be ground to a fine powder. This unconventional method of production is thought to have originated among Buddhist monks in South Korea who wanted to find a way of drying sea salt as quickly and thoroughly as possible. The resulting salt was used in healing rituals. Korean bamboo salt is still produced entirely by hand in the traditional way: no mass production techniques are involved.

Real Salt with Nothing to Hide

 Our Purple Bamboo Salt is made with only a handful of high-quality natural ingredients and materials. With no anti-caking agent or mystery ingredients, our healthy bamboo salt has nothing to hide—and everything to show.

Taken from Coastal Nature Reserve of Jeollabuk-do protected by the Korean government.

Triennial bamboo that grows in the sea winds, is high in sulfur. Sulfur assists our body to metabolize food and contributes to the health of your skin.

The soil free of manure collected from the mountains is passed nine times through a fine sieve. Then used to seal the sea salt in bamboo trunk. It is high in minerals, low in impurities.

Pure and filtered sprint water is mixed with the sea salt after the salt gets hardened due to roasting. So the salt can be stuffed into bamboo trunk again.

Fully dried and split into several parts so that it can be used to make up the fire. Alwatys kept out of the rain to keep the pine resin.

A natural fire starter that is kept fed into the fire to increase the fire temperature to 2500 °C.
