Why Icelandic Sea Salt Is So Expensive | So Expensive

12 313
Hand-harvested Icelandic sea salt could cost you more than 30 times the price of table salt. Housed in one of the most remote and coldest locations in the country, Saltverk salt factory produces 10 metric tons of salt each year. But there’s one other thing that’s unique about the way it’s processed: Everything is powered entirely by geothermal energy. Unlike processed rock salt, the sea minerals remain in the crystals - but these are only a tiny percentage of the final product. The final result is very minimally processed, flaky sea salt from clear Icelandic waters.

So, there's no reason for cost more besides the fact it is harder to produce in iceland.

For those of you who are salt connoisseurs: do you just eat straight up salt to notice a difference? Or do you add so much salt to your food you actually taste a difference?

Almost all if not all salt production in SE Asia is made by hand and heat from millions nuclear explosion called the sun. The only machine the salt farmer use is a water pump to pump sea water to a flat land from the canal. Even sometime they use manual pump. So why their salt is very cheap?
