Two Seas Sea Salt is a naturally low sodium sea salt based on a unique blend of sea salts harvested from the mineral-rich Dead Sea and the Red Sea. Not only does Two Seas Sea Salt contain less sodium than other varieties -- up to 60% -- but it is also an excellent source of potassium. A&B Ingredients offers a range of Two Seas Sea Salt products with various sodium reductions depending on the application. All Two Seas Sea Salt products offer the foodservice industry a sea salt that not only provides less sodium but also does not affect the taste profile of foods.
In making the announcement, Gil Bakal, A&B Ingredients' Managing Director, said "We are extremely pleased that our Two Seas Sea Salt product range has been recognized by the FSSC 22000. The proprietary manufacturing process effectively manages food safety while producing an exceptional product. The end result is that food manufacturers can take advantage of the combination of salts from both the mineral-rich Dead Sea and the Red Sea that provides less sodium and a natural taste."
