Health is a major concern for the French when it comes to food. Indeed, the “good for health” criterion comes in second place in the criteria for choosing a food product*. However, the French do not abandon the pleasure dimension: they seek to combine these two components, which emerge as the main dimensions of eating well. 29% consider that “eating healthy” is the first criterion for “eating well” ahead of “eating good” (23%) **.
To meet these expectations, the food market is constantly innovating to offer products that are as healthy as possible.
Salt, an essential ingredient in most of our meals, is harmful to health, in particular because it contributes, among other things, to the development of cardiovascular diseases. Manufacturers then seek to reduce the salt content of their products.
What is Posidonia salt?
Harvested on the island of Formentera, this sea salt contains only 8% sodium. This is due to a natural process where oceanic posidonia (an underwater plant) filters and purifies the seawater present in the salt pans. Thus, Posidonia salt has a reduced sodium content, without impacting quality and taste.
