The Fleur de Sel is the thin layer of saline crystals which is formed on the surface of the crystallizers of our traditional Salina. Between the months of July and September, these fragile micro crystals composed of different types of salts, are collected daily by hand using traditional methods, sun dried and subsequently packaged for different segments of the market. It is a 100% natural product, no additional treatments or additives
They are considered gourmet salts due to their high richness in existing minerals dissolved in the sea water and its high content in magnesium chloride and potassium chloride accentuates and enhances the flavour of the food. Equally and due to its marine origin and special crystallization, fleur de sel contains 80% of the trace elements which our body requires. Based on this we can confirm that a diet with fleur de sel, is a healthy way to avoid the need to complement your diet with mineral supplements.
The harvest of the fleur de sel is done purely manually and does not go through any industrial processes. It is left to dry in the sun and in the wind in order to obtain a pure product, without additives or any processing.
