Memphis company to distribute 'Christian salts'

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - You've heard of kosher salt? Now there's a Christian variety.

Retired barber Joe Godlewski of Cresaptown, Md., says he got tired of hearing television chefs recommend kosher salt, so he did something about it.

By next week, his trademarked Blessed Christians Salt will be available from Memphis, Tenn.-based Ingredients Corporation of America.

Derinda Landrum with ICA says Christian organizations can sell the salt for fund raisers.

"The only thing has to stay on there is the cross with the Christian blessed on there, but any Christian charity school church or anything can put there information on both sides," Landrum said

Landrum says an Episcopal minister is being lined up to bless the sea salt to make it Christian.

"The owner has talked with one," she said.

Technically, all salt is kosher since it's a naturally occurring mineral. And kosher salt is named for the way it is used, not its religious affiliation.

But that's immaterial to Godlewski. He plans an entire line of Christian foods if the salt takes off, with an undisclosed share of the proceeds earmarked for Christian charities.
