Hutchinson Salt's crystals are extracted from the richest bed of evaporates in the mid-west. The salt is mined at a level of 645 feet below the earth's surface in a 10 foot portion of an immense, natural occurring deposit. The operation is highly mechanized. Salt is passed through crushers near the mine's face which reduces the chunks to fragments less than 1 to 1 ½" in diameter. It is further processed to meet the following rigid specifications.
A careful screening process allows for the specialized gradation of this salt.
- Scientifically treated with 10ppm yellow prussiate of soda (yps) to prevent caking and lumping
- Economical alternative to expensive granulated salt
- Economical salt for animal nutrition
- Ideal for hide operations requiring a fine salt
