From the manufacturer's website:
"Sea salt in a natural mineral complex; it is source of sodium, chloride, and many other beneficial trace minerals. It is obtained by evaporating seawater. Sodium is essential to maintaining proper acid-base balance, cell function, and hydration. AAFCO has minimum sodium requirements for pet food to be compete and balanced. Nature’s Variety does not use salt as a preservative in our diets; we include it at optimized levels to meet proper nutrient standards."
