50km from the Mount Zero Olive grove, in Western Victoria is a large pink salt lake. The lake is fed by natural salt aquifers and each summer dries to reveal a bed of salmon pink salt. Mount Zero and the lake’s traditional owners, the Barengi Gadjin Land Council, have been working together to hand harvest a small amount of salt from the lake each year. An analysis of the salt tells us that it is a concentrated store of natural mineral nutrients, rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sulphur, iron, manganese, zinc and copper as well as being rich in beta carotene. This complexity of minerals, provides a complex, well rounded flavour – dissimilar to many sharp refined salts.
