By coloring WonderSalt withfruit and vegetable essences, it is possible not only to help kids and adults eat low-sodium foods, as a bonus, they can see how much salt to put on their food. This way, they can control their salt intake easily and learn in a fun way.”

Each Salt of the Earth package contains 50g product of each color, and with each maintaining same, rich salty taste of sea salt.

“Salt of the Earth is focused on developing a line of high-value sodium reduction solutions to address specific markets,” notes Trop Kirsch. ”Our mission is to help reduce sodium in the diet without compromising on good taste or high quality.”
