Gespräch unter Tage

Rock salt

More than 250 million years ago, large parts of Europe were covered by the so-called Zechstein Sea - a huge, salt-laden inland sea. Earth displacement and sedimentation by alluvial layers of soil ensured that a precious layer of salt lies deep underground today. Under our premium brand SALDORO, we market this pure, unrefined rock salt as Ursalz. A special feature: We have unique, rare pink deposits in Germany that are sold as SALDORO Ursalz.


Sea salt

Our sea salt is obtained from salt marshes in the Mediterranean region. Heat, sun, wind and dryness are important climatic conditions for sea salt extraction. The sea water is channeled into shallow basins and dries out naturally and slowly thanks to climatic factors. What remains are salt crystals that are harvested. Depending on the production process or location, the sea salt is usually washed and dried during further processing.


Vacuum salt

For the production of vacuum salt, the salty water from salt mines, the so-called brine, is evaporated. The brine is boiled in large, closed containers, where the water evaporates and salt crystals form. The resulting salt slurry is skimmed off, and the vacuum salt obtained is dried, sieved and further processed into our K+S vacuum salts.
