This fine sea salt is harvested from open air ponds fed by the Mediterranean Sea in Trapani (which if we're honest is where we wish we were right now).

Why we love it

Great for baking, cooking, seasoning, and pretending you're a master chef touring Sicily. This extra fine sea salt is harvested with care, which makes us feel that much more in touch with the waters it came from. See, we believe in the transportational powers of cooking. But it doesn't really matter where you want your dish to send you, this salt will help get you there. For us, our taste buds are headed to the Mediterranean Sea for a while.

How it does good

The "salt of the earth" that's good for the earth, too.

Sea salt comes from water, which means there are a lot of environmental elements to consider with it. Jacobsen tested water from over 25 locations before settling on the Netarts Bay oyster beds they now use. The oysters filter the sea water, creating a high salinity and low turbidity while filtering out any pollutants. Jacobsen also looks for ways to give back, both through their suppliers and the community. They use direct trade with Oregon seaweed farmers and work with brands who share their mission.

  • responsible sourcing

    In addition to the Oregon seaweed farmers who help produce their furikak blend, they also use local rosemary farmers. Jacobsen has partnered with Burlap & Barrel and Diaspora to bring fair trade far beyond their own ingredients.
  • supporting key causes

    Jacobsen Salt Co. has set their focus on childhood hunger causes. Each year, Ben Jacobsen participates in Chef's Cycle to raise money for the No Kid Hungry foundation. The company also donates products throughout the year to foundations looking to end food insecurity and childhood hunger. Finally, they've created the Jacobsen Co. Hive Program to source, deliver, and install bees and beehives while offering educational classes and consulting.
  • recyclable packaging

    Currently, most Jacobsen packaging is recyclable. They use glass and recyclable materials whenever they can, and they're looking to make plastic free alternatives for all packaging.
  • low carbon footprint

    Jacobsen is continually refining their processes to lower their carbon footprint. Right now, they're using gas in their process, but they've invested in new equipment to decrease their natural gas usage by nearly 50%.

How to use it
