The Alberger process is a method of producing salt.
It involves mechanical evaporation, and uses an open evaporating pan and steam energy. This results in a three-dimensional flake salt of light bulk density which, due to the shape of the flakes, has high solubility and good adhesiveness. It is extremely light bulk density making it highly prized in the fast food industry. The ratio of low sodium to high flavor content for a given volume is because the salt is 'cup-shaped', instead of in the crystaline form of normal salt.[A]
