about the producer
hakata salt co.
Based in Ehime Prefecture, Hakata Salt Co. was established in 1973. The evaporation method used to make salt on the Seto Inland Sea coast from 1953 to 1972 is said to have produced ideal salt for food preparation and the method is now used at Hakata Salt. Their products are defined by mild saltiness balanced with a hint of sweetness. This characteristic flavor results from traces of bittern, a component of the seawater used in their production process. Most commerical salt contains very little bittern and thus tastes harshly salty. Salt containing too much bittern has a strong bitter taste.
