Cheese & Butter-making

Cheese & Butter-making

There may be a large number of production processes, depending on the different types of cheese. Salins offers a wide range of salts for these different production methods, which vary according to:

  • • grain size (size of the salt crystals)
  • • origin (refined salt, sea salt)

  • For salting in brine

    • • Refined salt : Salinor fine refined salt
    • • Sea salt :
    • - La Baleine fine sea salt
    • - Le Saunier de Camargue fine sea salt: harvested in the Camargue, this additive-free sea salt is particularly suitable for making Natural or Organic products.
    • - Disal T1 sea salt: salt produced in Spain.
    • - Margherita fine sea salt: salt produced in Italy.
  • For mechanized dry salting

    • • Salinor selection fine refined salt : with crystals mostly between 200 and 630 µm
    • • Criblor refined salt : calibrated salts for mechanized salting :
    • - Criblor 200-400µm
    • - Criblor 300-500µm
    • - Criblor 200-500 µm
    • - Criblor 400-630µm : for mechanized volumetric salting
    • - Criblor 400-900µm
  • For other forms of dry salting

    • • Sea salt :
    • - La Baleine dried coarse salt
    • - La Baleine drained coarse salt
    • - Le Saunier de Camargue dried coarse salt: this additive-free sea salt is particularly suitable for making Natural or Organic products.
    • - Le Saunier de Camargue drained coarse salt: this additive-free sea salt is particularly suitable for making Natural or Organic products.
    • - Disal T2 salt: salt produced in Spain
    • - Disal T3 salt: salt produced in Spain
    • - Margherita dried coarse salt: salt produced in Italy.
    • • Refined salt :
    • - Salinor dried coarse salt 0.8/3.15 mm
    • - Salinor dried coarse salt 3/6 mm
  • For Butter-making

    • • Criblor 40µm refined salt : the very small size of the crystals prevents excessive amounts of water from entering the mass of the butter and provides for even salting.
    • • Disal T00 sea salt
  • To reduce the sodium content

    • La Baleine Essentiel salt and marine minerals (50% less sodium)
