Salt is often overlooked as health food, but salt provides the body with some essential minerals. When the body is under stress, minerals can be depleted at a rapid rate. Salt is one way to counterbalance this, of course when balanced with an overall mineral-rich diet.

100% PURE, CRYSTAL-WHITE, NATURAL DESERT SALT.

Just as it existed when traded ounce for ounce for gold eight thousand years ago. We add nothing and we take nothing away.



SUNDRIED, UNREFINED, NO ADDITIVES

As nature intended – no additives, no anti-clumping agents, no preservatives. Dried by the hot African desert sun. Unrefined and unprocessed. The underground brine lake is 100% saturated, so it takes only 4 weeks for the salt to crystalise in our main harvest season in summer when the temperatures reach up to 47o.

FROM AN ANCIENT & PRISTINE SOURCE

The ancient Dwyka rock formations, through which the underground streams flow, are geo-scientifically tested to be 250-300 million years old. The 50km2 salt pan is situated in the Kalahari Desert of 900,000km2, inside the Kalahari Basin which spans an area of 2.5 million km². 50km’s south of Botswana and +-250km north of Upington. A remote, pristine and beautiful area. The name KALAHARI is derived from the Tswana word Kgalagadi, meaning ‘the great thirst’.



CONTAINS VITAL MINERALS & TRACE ELEMENTS

Oryx Desert Salt has all the essential minerals and trace elements that exist naturally in salt, including magnesium, zinc and potassium. It provides your body with the correct balance of these minerals, as nature intended, so they can be utilised and absorbed for optimal vitality and health.

“Salt imbalances can make us very ill. We need to embrace the ‘salt of the earth’ in order to replace vital minerals.”- Sue Visser, Health Researcher, Nature Fresh


LOVED BY INTERNATIONAL CHEFS

Oryx Desert Salt has a unique and exceptional taste, which enhances and enriches the flavour of your food. Chefs from around the world taste the difference.

“It’s the only salt I use. It really has a fantastic flavour. In comparative tastings, the difference is immediately noticeable, and it fits in with my philosophy: to close borders, to remain local.” – Margot Janse, Le Quartier Francais, Franschhoek

“ORYX salt is a great food salt. I use it as a salt on a day to day basis, as well as a finishing salt. The salt is everything I look for when it comes to flavour.” – Craig Cormack, Sofia’s at Morgenster Estate, Somerset West.
“I use this salt because I find that the flavour of the final product is better. Salt is a critical part of the curing process and the amount used is very precise in order to prevent the product from spoiling. With ORYX desert SALT I don’t have to worry about the salt overpowering the flavour of the meat. I don’t use less but end up with a better product. I was using sea salt previously but prefer the flavour of the mineral salt.” – Richard Bosman – Richard Bosman charcuterie



SUSTAINABLE & RENEWABLE

The underground streams converge and replenish an ancient underground lake of 55 million tons from which the salt water is pumped, laid on the pan under the hot Kalahari sun and sun-dried. This process lives in harmony with the natural rainfall and the surrounding environment. We only extract what nature provides.


GIVING BACK

We believe in giving back to the community, so for every bag of salt sold, a percentage is donated to the Khomani San and Mier communities who own !Xaus Lodge in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in the Kalahari Desert.
