Eat Salt = Eat Plastic? 90% Edible Salt Sold in Asia Contaminated With Micro Plastic

This is real.

We eat salt everyday. But…

National Geographic and The Star had reported 90% table salt contaminated with micro plastic.

Micro plastic is health damaging.

However, clinical trial has not been conducted. Because it is unethical to experiment human with harmful materials.

How harmful is micro plastic?

salt sample containing micro plastic globally

From several animal studies. It is not hard to conclude that micro plastic may cause:

  • Gut inflammation
  • Growth problem in children
  • Reproduction problem in adult
  • Liver damage (less power to detox pesticide, drug and pollutant)
  • Cancer
  • Birth defect
  • Affect fetus brain development
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Metabolic problem (which may cause hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol)

How to eliminate micro plastic in salt?

The evaporation point for plastic is 300℃. Edible salt must be heated above this temperature to evaporate micro plastic.

However, the toxic clearing process has not done yet.

A byproduct called dioxin is formed during plastic burning. It is carcinogenic.

In simple word, dioxin causes cancer.

To eliminate dioxin, 700℃ is needed.


Therefore, burning is crucial to get rid of micro plastic.

Salt which has not been roasted at high temperature most probably put you at risk of micro plastic toxicity.

Any alternative to the refined salt, sea salt, rock salt which may contain micro plastic pollutant?

Panda salt manufacturing process (raw material from UNESCO certified World Heritage Site)

How Panda Salt is made?

  1. Sea salt rich in minerals is filled into 3 years growth bamboo trunk
  2. The bamboo opening is sealed with red clay from deep mountain
  3. Pine wood from rocky mountain is the burning material to raise burning temperature from 900℃ to 1500℃
  4. The roasting process takes around 8 hours in order to eliminate micro plastic, dioxin and heavy metals
  5. The roasting process is repeated 3, 6 or 9 times

We strongly suggest cooking with Panda Salt. Because, it’s

  • Free from micro plastic
  • Free from heavy metals
  • Free from dioxin
