Aquaforest products are manufactured in the EU under strict laboratory supervision to meet the highest quality standards.
Each product is prepared from carefully selected raw components in quantities proven to yield consistent composition.
How is Aquaforest Marine Salt product range tested?
Aquaforest mix their Marine Salt in 1 metric tonne (2204lb) batches, and 3 separate samples per batch are collected during the production stage for testing.
Each of these samples is dissolved in 15 litres (4US gal) of RO water.
Aquaforest experienced team of professionals perform ICP-OES analysis to verify that the chemical composition is within consistent range, and to rule out the presence of unwanted contaminants at the same time.
Note: Even though Aquaforest salt is thoroughly mixed, not every bucket/box will be identical.
The parameters can vary slightly between containers and around a 2-3% variation is acceptable.
This fluctuation is a result of both physical properties of the mix and the limitations of the processing techniques available.
These variations are still smaller than the typical margin for error for popular hobbyist test kits.
