Where it was rare, salt was traded ounce for ounce for gold,
brides or slaves. Salt and salt rich clays were the first mineral
food supplement consciously used by man, most probably since
the dawn of time. The Roman statesman Cassiodorus was quite observant
when he said, "Some seek not gold,but there lives not a
man who does not need salt. "
Rome's major highway was called the Via Salacia (salt
road) - soldiers used it to carry salt up from the Tiber River
where barges brought salt from the salt pans of Ostia. Soldiers
worth their salt were paid a "salary" - the word salary
is derived from salarium, money paid to soldiers to pay for their
ration of salt. Salt coins and discs were reported in Cathay
by Marco Polo. Salt discs in Ethiopia ere "salted away"
in the kings treasury. The production of salt as a food supplement
for man and beast is as old as civilization itself. Salt was
produced in shallow ponds of sea water through evaporation and
by mining rock salt from large land locked deposits. The Hallstatt
salt mine is one of the oldest commercial salt businesses on
Earth - it is located 50 miles from Salzburg (Salt Town) salt
has been mined from the Hallstatt mine since the early Iron Age.
Salzberg (Salt Mountain) contains a salt deposit 2,000 feet wide
2,500 feet deep - today there are 25 miles of galleries created
by the centuries of salt mining. The salt from the Hallstatt
Mine was exported and traded to the Celtics.
Salt was also an important
force in the African slave trade as captured children from warring
tribes were sold into slavery in exchange for salt. In other
parts of salt poor Africa humans developed the practice of drinking
cattle blood or urine to obtain salt. The residents of the Sierra
Leone coast gave all they possessed, including their wives and
children in exchange for salt because salt is an absolute requirement
for life and because salt is not equally distrib uted on Earth
and coveted by the have-nots, It is said by African tribesman,"He
who has salt has war."
There was also the interesting
fact that in the old criminal law of Holland, a particularly
terrible and much feared punishment was to restrict criminals
to a diet of bread and water without salt!!!
Salt is known as the universal
and most widely used food supplement and condiment. So great
is the human craving for salt, and the relish of it that we are
led to consider that a love of it is one of the most dominating
of our natural instincts and that salt itself is in fact necessary
to the health and even the life of man.Do
Minerals are essential
