Millenaire Fleur de Sel de Guérande 125gr
Fleur de sel ("Flower of salt" in French) is a hand-harvested sea salt collected by workers who scrape only the top layer of salt before it sinks to the bottom of large salt pans. Traditional French fleur de sel is collected off the coast of Brittany (most notably in the towns of Guérande - Fleur de sel de Guérande, hand harvested from salt marsh water being the most revered), Noirmoutier, and Camargue.
This salt is often slightly grey due to the sandy minerals collected in the process of harvesting the salt from the pans. On occasion, the presence of Dunaliella salina (a type of pink micro-algae commonly found in salt marshes) can give it a light pink tint.
