History of Salt

Today salt is universally available, but historically this was not the case. In the past, salt was used as a method of food preservation, flavoring agent, in pottery, religious rituals, and for medicinal and nutritional properties. It has served as money at various times and places, been the objective of major explorations, and it has caused bitter warfare. Salt was used around the world by many different cultures, including the ancient Romans, Egyptians, Hebrews, and Greeks. Documents have even been recovered in China from 2,700 BC that discuss over 40 types of salt and their extraction methods, which are very similar to the processes still used.
Presently, salt comes either from salt mines or from the sea. Most of today's salt is mined from large deposits left by dried salt lakes throughout the world. However, the sea salt offered by Mountain Rose Herbs has been gathered from the Pacific Ocean and solar dried this is the more costly of the two processes.
