Grey Salt of Guerande
The gray salt also called Celtic or Breton salt indicates a certain type of sea salt. We are talking about the salt of Guérande, extracted in the Pays de la Loire region, in the north-western part of France, a bay that with its about 2000 hectares of land rich in salt pans embraces a dozen municipalities.
The pearl gray color of guérande salt is due to the clay that allows crystallization and ensures a high supply of trace elements essential for the proper functioning of the human body (magnesium, potassium, iron, etc.).
This salt is not treated with whiteners and does not undergo any type of refining, so it retains its characteristic gray color and large amount of minerals.
It has over 80 different species including Calcium, Potassium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Iodine.
It is still harvested in an artisanal way according to the ancient Celtic method, which involves the use of wooden tools and not metal, so as not to contaminate its purity. Once harvested, the salt is aligned and sifted without undergoing any treatment or washing, that is, without the use of any improver and any other chemical substance.
It is 100% natural, and is exclusively sifted to offer consumers the highest quality.
The Grey Salt of Guerande, rich in magnesium and trace elements, has a characteristic and unmistakable scent that enhances the dishes. The flavor, subtle and delicate, makes it ideal for seasoning various qualities of dishes from meat to fish to vegetables. It is an excellent wholemeal and natural salt.
