How is Salt Made?

Salt, which we use in almost every aspect of daily life, goes through a process of millions of years before it reaches us. Salt made of various minerals can be produced through different methods. 

There are two primary methods for the production of this valuable mineral:

  1. Production of salt through the evaporation of salt lakes and ocean waters.
  2.  Production of salt through the crushing of salt rocks formed from dried-up seas.

In both methods, salt production is further divided into branches, thus creating different areas of use for salt. For instance, the processes involved in producing fine-grained table salt used in cooking and coarse-grained pickling salt used in pickle production are different.

How is Salt Produced?

Salt is a seasoning used in many aspects of life. It is utilized in cooking, energy cleansing, pickling, and more.

So, how is salt produced? There are a few answers to this question. There are certain sources from which salt is extracted. Natural saltwater and salt deposits are among them.

Natural saltwater is produced by drying under the sun or in pans. Rock salts, on the other hand, form as lake and sea waters gradually evaporate and turn into rock over time. These rocks are then extracted through dynamite blasting.

How is Table Salt Made?

Table salt is the most commonly used type of salt in dining and cooking. Table salt, made of fine crystals, which is perfect for seasoning dishes.

It is usually produced by evaporating sea and ocean water.

There are two methods to evaporate sea or ocean water:

  1. Evaporation by boiling in a pan
  2. Drying in the sun in special pans

During the evaporation process, water is evaporated until only salt remains. The resulting salt crystals are collected. It undergoes several processes to become suitable for consumption. Finally, it is packaged for distribution to consumers.

Where Does Salt Come From? 

Salt producing involves various techniques to extract salt from different sources. 

There are two sources of salt production: saltwater sources and salt mines.

Salt mines are formed from seas or lakes that dried up millions of years ago. These salt deposits are broken down into pieces using special methods.

Another source of salt is saltwater springs. Salt, made from sea water, is often preferred. In special pans or pans, these waters are evaporated, leaving behind salt crystals.

Both methods require labor and care.

How is Mayi Salt Produced? 

Mayi Salt, is the purest and cleanest natural source of salt that nature offers to humans. Mayi Salt emerges in liquid form from a fault line. We act as ambassadors to deliver this natural salt from nature to people. Mayi Salt is produced solely by harnessing nature, utilizing hygienic greenhouse-type pans and drying it under sunlight. Throughout the production process, it undergoes no chemical treatment. Thus, it remains in its most natural and healthy state. It is packaged in boxes that pose no harm to health. Preserving the authenticity that emerged 200 million years ago, it reaches you without losing any of its natural essence.
