Insan Bamboo Salt
Original Insan Bamboo Salt, roasted 9 times.
Korean traditional bamboo salt, Insan Jukyeom.
Bamboo salt ( Jukyeom ) is a health salt extracted from the roasting process using five major sub-materials that is the sun-dried salt from the Western Sea Coast of the Korean Peninsula, bamboo plants of more than three years old, pure yellow soil from deep valleys, pine tree firewood and steel furnace.
Bamboo salt ( Jukyeom ) is a safe salt because it is completely pollution-free, it does not contain the harmful elements of ordinary sun-dried sea salt, and it has no sodium troubles by chemical refined salt.
The 'jukyeom' means 'bamboo salt' literally but it is a proper noun invented by Korean Divine Herbalist Insan Kim (1909-1992). We can also spell it 'jukyom' in English.
Neither systematic methodology of Bamboo salt ( Jukyeom ) manufacture, nor any analysis of its ingredients or proper application for any particular purpose was carried out until the publication of the book 'The Universe and God's Medicine' by Il-hoon (Insan) Kim in 1981.
How to make Bamboo Salt ( Jukyeom )
For the sub-materials for genuine jukyeom, we need the sun-dried salt from the Western Sea Coast of the Korean Peninsula, bamboo tree of more than three years old, pure yellow soil from deep valleys, pine tree firewood and steel furnace.
Those four major sub-materials should be Korean origin due to their unique ingredients.
The reason is grounded on the fact that certain herbs such as ginseng or bamboo have a totally different ratio of its major ingredients according to its country of origin.
Cut the bamboo tree trunk so that one end is hollowed and the other end is closed.
Then fill the bamboo tubes with the sun-dried sea salt and close the opened end with kneaded yellow soil from deep valleys.
The bamboo tubes are then stacked inside the furnace, and burned with pine tree firewood.
While the bamboo container becomes ash, the melted ingredients of bamboo soak into the salt. The stuffed salt is also melted and then becomes hardened into white column.
The hand mill crushes these hardened salt columns. Then new bamboo tube containers are filled with the crushed salt and heated again.
This type of heating process is repeated 8 times.
On 9th time, it is roasted at 1500 °C by sprinkling pine-resin on the pine tree firewood and other heating agents.
Through this process, the salt is beginning to melt and flow down like lava, and finally becomes hardened like big stone.
This is "Jukyeom" (which means "Bamboo Salt" in Korean). People can take this salt in a type of powder or crystals.
