What is the most expensive salt in the world?


A large island of the coast of the Danish mainland called Laeso, is where today’s most expensive salt comes from. The island becomes extremely dry over the summer and the ground water becomes comprised of an astonishing amount of salt. In fact, this water is approximately fifteen percent salt. This island was extremely popular for the manufacturing of salt in the Middle Ages. This popularity actually led to the island’s complete deforestation, as the salt factories used a huge amount of wood in the processing of this salt.

Today, salt operations on the island operate in much the same way that they did one thousand years ago. Perhaps the only difference is that this island has also become a huge tourist attraction due to the quality of salt that is produced there. The island sees approximately 60,000 visitors in a year.

The wonderful Laeso Salt costs 150 Danish kroner per kilogram. This is equal to approximately $29 USD. There are many other big plans going on for the island as well. Plans are in the works to reopen the dairy that sits on the land to begin manufacturing Laeso-salted, cheese, sausages, and hams. There is also a small church on the island that is going to be reopened to become a health spa. This health spa will provide people with skin disease to come bathe in the byproducts that come with producing this expensive salt.
