Kalahari Desert Truffle Salt 95g
As nature intended: No additives, no anti-clumping agents, no preservatives. Dried by the hot African, desert sun – unrefined and unprocessed.
The ancient Dwyka rock formations, through which the underground streams flow, are geo-scientifically tested to be 250 to 300 million years old. The 50km2 salt pan is situated in the Kalahari Desert of 900,000km2, inside the Kalahari Basin which spans an area of 2.5 million km², 50kms south of Botswana and +-250km north of Upington.
A remote, pristine and beautiful area.
Kalahari Desert Salt has all the essential minerals and trace elements that exist naturally in salt, including magnesium, zinc and potassium.
The underground streams converge and replenish an ancient underground lake of 55 million tons, from which the salt water is pumped, laid on the pan under the hot Kalahari sun and sun-dried. This process lives in harmony with the natural rainfall and the surrounding environment. We only extract what nature provides.
We believe in giving back to the community. So, for every bag of salt sold, a percentage is donated to the Khomani San and Mier communities who own !Xaus Lodge in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in the Kalahari Desert.
Kalahari Desert Salt has a unique and exceptional taste, which enhances and enriches the flavour of your food. Chefs from around the world can taste the difference.
“It’s the only salt I use. It really has a fantastic flavour. In comparative tastings, the difference is immediately noticeable, and it fits in with my philosophy: To close borders, to remain local.” – Margot Janse, Le Quartier Francais, Franschhoek
