RIVSALT - Persian Blue Salt Rocks
Persian Blue Salt is the rarest and most exclusive salt and is extracted from a salt mine in northern Iran. The intriguing blue color occurs during the forming of the salt’s crystalline structure, as intense pressure is exerted on the salt deposits. The individual crystals fracture the light in an unusual way creating an optical illusion that makes the salt appear more or less shimmering blue.
Initially quite present and then rather mild with a silken sweetness. Highly popular with children for some reason!
Ideal for seafood, salads, french cuisine & truffles
85.8% NaCl, 0.097% Ca, 0.028% Mg, 13.0% potassium, <0.005% iodine, <0.1% moisture
The RIVSALT product range is designed by Swedish entrepreneur and designer Jens Sandringer. Jens came up with the concept while dining at a Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant in Beijing, where the master chef grated salt over the dishes using a large grater and big salt rock. A unique experience which sparked the initial product idea complementing the rise of Scandinavian foodie and design trends. The original RIVSALT product was launched in Sweden in 2013.
Born from a large number of prototypes, first in cardboard then in wood and metal, initial design thoughts were all about creating a dining table centerpiece. Consequently, size and product simplicity were the two most important elements in the process. Beautiful, so that it would stay on the dining table as a design object, simple enough so that folks immediately would understand, talk about it and finally enjoy testing the gastronomic experience.
