Zeeuwsche Zoute with wakame seaweed in it. The seaweed that is used in it comes from the Oosterschelde and is extracted by De Zeeuwse Zeewierhandel. This salt variant is a typical Zeeland combination in which you can taste the Oosterschelde again. Anyone who thinks it is difficult to cook with salt with wakame will be in for a pleasant surprise: this flavor combination gives unexpected dishes a taste boost. How about some seaweed sea salt on your roast sirloin steak, for example?
From water to salt crystal
We use a combination of 500 years of Zeeland craftsmanship and modern technical solutions to make our salt. All these elements contribute to the craft of our work: creating an extraordinarily authentic salt product that enriches our daily life and offers a new taste sensation every time.
Where Zeeuwsche Zout finds its origin
On the banks of the Dutch Oosterschelde, we pump up the seawater with the incoming tide at the fishing village of Bruinisse on the island of Schouwen-Duiveland. The Oosterschelde National Park is the largest national park in the Netherlands. Purified by sandbars, oyster and mussel beds, this is one of the best places to obtain clear and clean water from the Oosterschelde. Did you know that an oyster purifies an average of 5 liters of water per hour? Mussels go the extra mile and purify no less than 10 liters of water per hour.
