Maldon Sea Salt is a unique sea salt that is only produced by The Maldon Crystal Salt Company. Maldon Salt can be purchased wholesale in 8.5 oz boxes (case of 12) or in 3.3 lb buckets.
Maldon Sea Salt is a completely natural product without any artificial additives, retaining valuable sea water trace-elements such as magnesium and calcium. Its pronounced and distinctive "salty" taste means less salt is required, an advantage for those who wish to reduce their salt intake. It is free from the bitter aftertaste often associated with other salts and salt substitutes.
What makes Maldon Sea Salt so special?
The pyramid-shaped salt crystals, characteristic of Maldon Salt, are fragile enough to crumble easily between the fingers and have a totally different taste from regular grains of table salt. It is an interesting exercise to taste common salt alongside Maldon Salt. The common salt sits uncomfortably on the tongue and has an underlying bitterness. Maldon Salt is milder, has the flavor of sea spray and is free from the chemical tang of common salt. Unlike most salts containing additives to stop them from caking in damp weather, Maldon Salt is a completely natural product containing zero additives.
The making of Maldon Sea Salt
The attraction of Maldon, England as a location for salt-making remains the same today as it did hundreds of years ago. The combination of low rainfall, strong winds, bright sunshine and low-lying marshland produces good salty water. Early salt-making was carried out by boiling sea water, caught in shallow pools set in the marshland, over wood fires. These fires in turn acted as beacons for the local fishing fleets making their way up the coast. Today the manufacture of Maldon Salt still relies on the favorable conditions which have enabled the salt industry to develop and flourish here for many centuries. The Maldon Crystal Salt Company's success is due to the production of a unique high quality sea salt using traditional methods.
How Chefs regard Maldon Salt
The Maldon Crystal Salt Company have been manufacturers and merchants of salt since 1882. During this time Maldon Salt has become recognized as the finest salt available. This is not an unsubstantiated claim, as Delia Smith recently included Maldon Salt among her 'essential ingredients.' Judging by the recommendations found in the books of some of our best known chefs, she is in good company.
