FAQ

Why is the salt pink?

 Murray River Salt® Flakes are produced using the pristine mineralized brines from the ancient saline aquifers of the Murray Darling Basin. The stunning pale pink hue of the salt flakes is a result of the mineralized brines used to make the salt products. 

How are Murray River Gourmet Salt flakes made?

Murray River Salt® Flakes are produced using the pristine mineralized brines from the ancient saline aquifers of the Murray Darling Basin. Mineralized brine is pumped into shallow lake beds and the sun does its work over many months and leaves a layer of salt to be harvested. 

Isn't all salt the same?

 Murray River Salt® Flakes are very soft and fragile and create a superior texture to your food as opposed to ordinary granulated table salt. Murray River Salt Flakes are not as ‘salty’ as table salt and they enhance the flavour rather than overpowering it. Murray River Salt products have a lower sodium level by volume than other salt products.

Isn't salt bad for you?

No, in fact sodium is an essential part of our daily health. Without salt, quite simply, we would die, and as the body constantly loses salt through bodily functions, it must be replaced. Salt plays also plays an important role in controlling our heart rate and curbing release of stress hormones. Dietary guidelines recommend a daily intake of up to 2,300 milligrams a day - or 1,500 milligrams if you're age 51 or older (www.mayoclinic.org).
