Unprocessed, unwashed and unrefined, Olsson’s Macrobiotic Sea Salt retains a high natural balance of sea minerals and marine trace elements.
The literal meaning of “macrobiotic” is “the way of long life”. The term itself comes from Hippocrates (the so-called father of Western medicine), who invented it to describe healthy, long-lived individuals.
The sense in which we have used this term refers to products or food that have had a minimum of human intervention in their manufacture or production. Macrobiotics is about food from the Earth. It is based on the Eastern ideal of achieving harmony between yin and yang. And while rooted in ancient tradition, the idea of the macrobiotic dietary approach is a remarkably modern way of eating.
Olsson’s Macrobiotic Sea Salt is the first natural “celtic-style” or “grey” sea salt (they call it sel gris in France) produced in Australia. You can buy the Macrobiotic Sea Salt in Raw, Rock and Fine grades, in hessian bags and grinders for the table. This salt actually tastes like the ocean.
