Gustus Vitae Goes Non GMO

PASADENA, Calif. — Since starting at the Venice Beach Farmer’s Market in 2014, Gustus Vitae (translation from Latin: Taste of Life) has been renewed as the go-to boutique crafter of artisan sea salts and gourmet spice blends.

Using locally sourced all natural ingredients, each finishing salt and seasoning is made just like it always was: carefully, laboriously, and in small batches, before being hand-packed in their unique magnetic tins.

Knowing every step in the chain from living plant to finished product has been key since the early days at the Farmer’s Market, and Gustus Vitae has recently been awarded the Non GMO Project seal, verifying the integrity and wholesomeness of their ingredients, processes, and products.

Gustus Vitae, like the Non GMO Project, believes strongly that everyone deserves to know what is in their food, and to have access to Non GMO alternatives to the mass-produced spices and salts most commonly available on supermarket shelves.

Healthy ingredients are just the start: Gustus Vitae is actively involved in local communities and charities, and now has a recipe site with over 150 recipes providing easy and nutritious meal ideas, complete with straightforward directions and gorgeous photography. The recipes can be found at:

In addition, Gustus Vitae has been growing their database of video recipes, all available for free, and live on their YouTube page: or;

Gustus Vitae’s range of products are reflective of the often eclectic Venice Beach lifestyle that birthed the company; originally started under a small umbrella in the Venice Beach Farmer’s Market, and now available in retailers and supermarkets across the country and online at sites likVideo – World firsts and limited-edition runs are their hallmark, with this year seeing the release of new combinations and flavors like: Dijon Mustard Sea Salt, Tzatziki Sea Salt, and Tandoori Sea Salt, always made in small batches with all natural ingredients, and now Non GMO Project verified.
