ORIGIN: Guérande

A TOUCH OF HISTORY,

The pink Fleur de Sel comes from Guérande, in Brittany. In the Iron Age, this salt was harvested by a fire technique, which resulted in significant deforestation. Today, the harvest occurs in the salt marshes. In 1500, marshes already reached 80% of their current surface! Around 1900, the production of pink Fleur de sel had to face the competition of the mine salt but also the decrease of the use of salt for food conservation.

The fleur de sel is a very fine layer of white crystals. It is found on the surface of salt marshes and develops thanks to the evaporative action of the wind.

LET’S DIG IN!

Since the salt crystals are very thin, they will dissolve very quickly. It is best to use it at the end of cooking or when serving. Use it in every dish as a table salt. The pink fleur de sel will go perfectly with spices.

COMPOSITION:

Magnesium, calcium, iron, potassium, sulfur, manganese, zinc, cadmium, iodine, fluorine and trace elements

WHAT OUR GRAND MOTHERS TOLD US:

Rich in magnesium and trace elements, its taste is much finer and more delicate than that of table salt. Its pinkish tint is the result of the proliferation of dunaliellia salina, microscopic red algae. It accumulates carotenoids and gives off a smell of violets.
