2. About our Salt Production
Our salt from the Siwa Oasis is very unique as it is generated from a unique geographical phenomena. The area of Siwa is 18m metres below sea level and the salt we extract is very unique. Just 15cm below the surface of the soil we have rock salt and after excavating a further 50cm we hit the water table and the excavation area becomes a lake producing an exceptionally high quality lake salt. Siwa is one of 8 of the most remote and isolated areas in the world meaning that pollution of the salt is non existent and this aids the production of a very high quality salt indeed. The Salt extracted from our mining fields in Siwa is principally known and recognised for its low moisture content (ranging from 0.4% to 1.0%) and its exceptionally high purity of Sodium Chloride of 99.26% minimum.
With over 14,000 different uses, salt is relied upon by industries as diverse as chemicals, oil drilling, power generation, hide processing and textile dyeing as well as cooking and for consumption. Siwa Salt UK can lead the way in supplying an exceptionally high quality product.
