Pure, unadulterated salt. The local provenance of the salt, along with the hand harvesting, natural sun drying and the salts beautiful flavour and colour are a mirror Mount Zero's core principles of regionalism, sustainability and quality. Note:the pink colour fades as the salt dries out!
50km from the Mount Zero Olive grove, in Western Victoria is a large pink salt lake. The lake is fed by natural salt aquifers and each summer dries to reveal a bed of salmon pink salt. Mount Zero and the lake's traditional owners, the Barengi Gadjin Land Council, have been working together to hand harvest a small amount of salt from the lake each year.
An analysis of the salt tells us that it is a concentrated store of natural mineral nutrients, rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sulphur, iron, manganese, zinc and copper as well as being rich in beta carotene. This complexity of minerals, provides a complex, well rounded flavour - dissimilar to many sharp refined salts.
Mount Zero Pink Lake Salt is a natural product which varies in pigment from wet to dry. The local provenance of the salt, along with the hand harvesting & natural sun drying and most importantly the salts beautiful flavour and colour are a key fit with Mount Zero's core principles of regionalism, sustainability and quality.
