Sel à l'Ancienne
A traditional serving of authenticity
In contact with the pure water from the glaciers of Azeindaz and Diablerets, the rock has been drawing its pure and unspoiled treasure for 200 million years: fragile salt crystals trapped in natural brine, extracted by hand by our artisans and dried patiently on larch wood planks.
This process, dating back to the 17th century, is the pride of the artisans who extract the Saline de Bex. Their intricate work puts this artisanal product into an exclusive class of its own.
Packaged in its natural state. Rich in mineral salts, trace elements and without any additives, our Sel à l'Ancienne is distinguished by its purity: from the very heart of the Swiss Alps, you can be assured it is devoid of any harmful pollutants, and the Swiss origin of this product contributes to a more responsible consumption.
Without any additives. The Sel à l'Ancienne on your plate is as pure as the salt that was trapped in the rock when the sea receded two hundred million years. We have added nothing. No iodine, no fluorine.
