Salt from the Atlantic Ocean is our only ingredient...
At Maine Sea Salt Company, we believe that the cool, mineral-rich saline waters of the Gulf of Maine provide our natural sea salts with a unique flavor. As the first salt works in Maine in over 200 years, our company brings forward the tradition of harvesting pure and natural sea salt, directly from the source... the ocean! We make our sea salt naturally, through the evaporation and reduction of sea water in solar green houses and shallow pools.
We extract our sea salt from ocean water... naturally!
Our solar greenhouses, known as "salt houses" are filled with fresh sea water from the Gulf of Maine. Sea salt crystals are formed over time from the effects of natural solar evaporation and wind. Learn more » and see photos of our sea salt production process.

Why our natural sea salt is healthier
We do not wash or bleach our natural salt at any time during the solar production process. Therefore, the nutritious trace minerals naturally occurring in sea water are retained in our products. We also do not use chemicals or drying agents.
Our smoked salts and seasoned salts all begin with the same natural goodness as our original sea salt, and are enhanced with either natural wood smoke, or freshly-dehydrated natural flavorings, such as garlic, and lemon.
We invite you to explore the versatility and exciting flavors that Maine Sea Salt™ products can bring to your own dinner table, kitchen, or barbecue.
