Salicornia – The Green Salt
It’s not just a healthy, plant-based substitute for salt, it’s a super food.
With a lower sodium content than sea salt, the mild salty flavor of salicornia, known as pickleweed or “Green Salt“, is also due to the presence of several minerals in this plant. It is also rich in vitamins, fiber and proteins, which make it an excellent complement to a vegetarian diet.
Salicornia is a very special plant that grows in saline environments and has evolved to tolerate this hostile condition, just as we will have to do in the future. The company Salivitae, after several years of producing and exporting fresh salicornia, began dehydrating and grinding it into powder, to be used as a salt substitute and as a natural supplement, full of nutrients. In practice, the most tender parts of the plant are cut and washed, then dehydrated in a solar oven and crushed in a special mill before being packaged.
The objective when dehydrating and grinding salicornia was to completely eliminate waste on the farm, while at the same time making it possible to consume this plant on a daily basis. At Salivitae, these plants are cultivated with care, from the moment they are seeds until they reach 15 centimeters in height, the ideal point for harvesting. The organic production approach, with 0% waste and the use of solar energy, provides you with the best plants to be used in the kitchen or as a complement.
In addition to all these benefits, we also found a way to regenerate lands with high salinity. This product is truly unique, and Salivitae is the only company in the country that produces this variety of salicornia naturally, organically and with organic certification.
All scientific literature points to the benefits of helping to prevent or treat heart problems, cardiovascular diseases, cancer and high cholesterol. Its benefits make it a superfood. With a lower sodium content than sea salt, the mild salty flavor of salicornia is also due to the presence of several minerals in this plant. It is also rich in vitamins, fiber and proteins, making it a complete and excellent supplement in a vegetarian diet.
