On the island of Hawaii, salt has for centuries been obtained by evaporating seawater in ponds along the coast during the dry summer months, resulting in a unique sea salt that captures the soul of the Pacific Ocean.
On the island of Molokai the ancient saltmaking tradition has been revived and brought up to date. On modern salt farms the seawater is filtered to meet the standards of the USA’s Food and Drug Administration. No other salt is obtained from water as pure as this. Over several weeks and with the help of solar power, the seawater evaporates slowly and naturally in food-safe pans in which it is protected from impurities by glass. This ensures that none of the precious minerals and trace elements are lost.
Entirely natural additives give the Hawaiian salt its various hues, which represent the characteristic colours of the landscape: green stands for the luscious vegetation, red for the clay and black for the islands’ volcanic origins.
For the green Hawaiian salt in the FINEST FOOD AGE SALT COLLECTION, the salt is mixed with bamboo leaf extract, which gives it its enchanting green colour.
