the raw material for Bad Reichenhaller AlpenSalz was formed when the primeval ocean evaporated. That makes it older than the dinosaurs.
is the distance traveled by Bad Reichenhaller AlpenSalz when it is exported (by ship) from Bad Reichenhall to Tokyo.
is the height of the popular Bad Reichenhaller mini-shaker. The perfect travel companion contains 10 g of salt “to go.”
are the contents of the classic salt package for the household introduced by Bad Reichenhaller in 1950. Bad Reichenhaller also pioneered the well-known 500 g shaker.
All Bad Reichenhaller products are suitable for vegetarian and vegan diets.
require salt for their manufacture. The valuable raw material thus plays an essential role not only in nutrition, but also in industry – from baking powder to aluminum, glass, and plastic.
of Bad Reichenhaller AlpenSalz can be dissolved in a liter of water. The solution is then fully saturated and cannot absorb any more salt.
is the salt concentration of the blood and the fluids of the human body. That means that 9 grams of salt are dissolved in a liter of blood. Compared to this, the sea has a salt content of 35 g per liter.
are what an adult needs on average every year. This corresponds to the daily consumption recommended by the DGE of 6 g of salt.
Celtic salters lived in the Bad Reichenhall region as archaeological finds have shown. It has thus been known for ages that the area is rich in “Hall.” “Hall” is the West Germanic word for salt.
is the size of most grains of salt (over 70%) in a package of Bad Reichenhaller AlpenSalz. A small grain of salt weighs approx. 0.05 mg, a large grain approx. 0.7 mg
is the temperature at which evaporation crystallization is performed in order to obtain evaporated salt from brine.
Germany is ranked number 4 in global salt production – after China, the US and India. (Status 2016)
of fluid are filtered by the kidneys every day. They are the most important organs in the human body for regulating the salt and water balance. That means that 1,350 to 1,620 g of salt also flow through the kidneys every day.
is the amount of brine extracted at the Berchtesgaden salt mine annually.
and considerable differences in height were conquered by the brine pipeline built in 1817 from Berchtesgaden to Bad Reichenhall with the help of the unique water column lifting machines. At Ilsank, the brine was pumped 365 meters up the mountain.
12 °C is the temperature below ground at the Berchtesgaden salt mine.
is the weight of a pinch of salt, even if most people measure it by feeling. The following units are also used often in cookbooks: a knife point (0.25 g of salt), a level teaspoon (5 g of salt), and a level tablespoon (15 g of salt).
400 packets of salt per minute can be filled by modern filling machines.
was the salt layer that formed about 250 million years ago when an inland sea separated from the primeval ocean by a headland evaporated.
of the sodium chloride consumed in Germany is used as table salt, while the overwhelming majority is used as industrial salt.
