Celtic Sea Salt Coarse Moist 0.8-5 mm
Celtic sea salt is also called "Sel de Guarande" or "Sel gris" and comes from France. The famous sea salt from Guerande has been harvested by salt farmers of Brittany, France, according to ancient tradition for more than 2000 years. This salt is a low-sodium salt. The salt fields consist of grey-blue clay. This clay gives important minerals and trace elements to the salt crystal and this gives Atlantic sea salt its unique light grey colour and unmistakable taste.
Traditional production of Celtic Sea Salt.
For centuries, the production of Celtic Sea Salt has been done by hand. In several successive salt ponds, seawater slowly becomes Celtic sea salt. Atlantic seawater flows in summer at high tide through a canal system in a first salt pan, where it comes to rest, so that large particles in the water can settle.
The pure seawater that remains is led further to the next salt pan. This and subsequent salt pans have a clay base full of minerals and trace elements. The clay slightly reduces the sodium content in the seawater.
In the last salt pan, the seawater, which is itself full of minerals and trace elements, is calmed again so that the sun can evaporate the water. The minerals and trace elements are absorbed into the salt which slowly settles to the bottom. The top layer of salt, which has had the least contact with the clayey subsoil and is almost white in colour, is then skimmed off by hand.
The remaining salt, which is grey in colour and contains more minerals and trace elements than the Fleur de Sel, is then skimmed off by hand. This moist sea salt is then dried for half a year, after which it is scooped directly into the packaging without further treatment.
Taste and useThe Celtic sea salt with its strong but mild salty taste is suitable for many dishes. Due to its high residual moisture, it is not suitable for use in a salt mill. It is, however, an excellent substitute for common salt, table salt or jozo salt. Read more about where to buy keltic sea salt below.
