Sea salt is a broad term that generally refers to unrefined salt derived directly from a living ocean or sea. It is harvested through channeling ocean water into large clay trays and allowing the sun and wind to evaporate it naturally. Manufacturers of sea salt typically do not refine sea salt as much as other kinds of salt, so it still contains traces of other minerals, including iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc and iodine. Proponents of sea salt rave about its bright, pure, clean flavor, and about the subtleties lent to it by these other trace minerals. Some of the most common sources for sea salt include the Mediterranean Sea, the North Sea, and the Atlantic Ocean (particularly in France, on the coast of Brittany). Sea salt is thought to be healthier and more flavorful that traditional table salt. Available in coarse and fine grain.
RED SEA SALT is a traditional Hawaiian table salt used to season and preserve. A natural mineral called "Alaea" (volcanic baked red clay) is added to enrich the salt with iron oxide. This natural additive is what gives the salt its distinctive pink color. The clay imparts a subtle flavor that is said to be mellower than regular sea salt.
HIMALAYAN SEA SALT: 300 millions years ago,an ancient ocean existed where the Himalayan Mountains are today. After the collision of two continental plates, when the ocean dried up, a mineral rich salt deposit was left behind, buried by the natural forces creating the mountain range. The raising mountains sealed off the pure salt crystals from all contamination from civilization's chemicals and pollutants.
This totally natural salt contains over 74 trace minerals, including all those known to be essential for good health and vitality.
Himalayan sea salt is not processed with chemicals and contains no preservatives or additives. This ancient salt
is mined by hand and stone ground.
BALINESE SEA SALT is an artisan produced salt from the remote black sand beaches of Northern Bali. Evaporated naturally into tiny white pyramids, these salt crystals are exceptionally fine- tasting and uniquely crunchy.
