The Meadow carries over a dozen different types of Japanese sea salts, more than from just about any other single country. Japan has a long tradition of making salt using their home-grown techniques that are unlike any found in the rest of the world.
We’re often asked how the Fukushima Dai-ichi reactor disaster in March of 2011 effects the salt products coming from Japan. We’ve written an extensive article about Radiation and Japanese Sea Salt to try and answer this question. The article covers the basics of how radiation works, where our salts are made in Japan relative to Fukushima, and if there is any impact on the quality of Japanese sea salt.
The Meadow is also still selling a set of three Japanese sea salts to benefit the victims of the tsunami. All net proceeds from the sale of this product will be donated to Mercy Corp.
