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 "cup-shaped" flake salt, which has low bulk density, high solubility and good adhesiveness. The extremely low bulk density makes the salt highly prized in the fast-food industry due to its lower sodium content and stronger flavor for a given volume.[A]
