rivsalt which means grated salt in Swedish, is a gastronomic experience and a new way of adding salt to food. Natural himalayan salt is grated onto the dish with a stainless steel grater of highest quality. The salt and grater become centerpiece of the dining table when placed in the accompanying desk stand made from untreated natural oak.
himalayan rock salt originates from northern pakistan from the area called the “salt range” not far from the himalayan mountains. it is a natural rock salt that was created when the prehistoric seas evaporated some 250 million years ago. this was long before the sub continent indian plate moved north and crashed into asia creating the himalayan mountain range. the actual salt rocks vary in color from pure white to beautiful light pink to dramatic deep red, all depending on iron oxide content.
The original rivsalt product includes a japanese style grater, a himalayan salt rock (40g) and a desk stand made from untreated natural oak, all delivered in an attractive cardboard gift tube.
