The best french grey salt
Artisan Celtic French Salt is harvested in Brittany in France. It comes from the beautiful islands of Noirmoutier and Île de Ré. Here the unique salt sea ponds are categorized as a cherished national treasure. Ancient methods, which have been in use for thousands of years, are still used today to harvest natural gray Celtic French salt. Not only is the water in this region of France pristine but it also contains a higher concentration of mineral rich brine. The seawater in this area of the Celtic coast is known for its mineral-dense water.
Celtic French Salt is renowned as an absolutely natural and nutritious salt because it contains a range of essential naturally occurring minerals. There are no harmful additives and nothing is removed from the Sel Gris. It is lower in sodium chloride and an entirely natural source of more than 80 critical trace elements and minerals. These minerals occur in minute amounts in sea water and are natural electrolytes which are required for your body. Celtic French Salt helps to stimulate enzyme and digestive juice production. The body needs this in order to fully utilize nutrients from the diet. This is especially true in the case of cooked foods as the cooking process can destroy the essential enzymes making it harder for the body to digest properly. Unrefined sea salt is very beneficial in assisting the body to digest food. Untreated sea salt is also necessary for good adrenal gland function. It is these essential and vital minerals that give Celtic French Salt its distinctive characteristic gray color.
Flavorful and Healthy Salt Alternative – Celtic French Salt
Many people believe that all salt is potentially harmful to your health. This is not true. The man-made, refined salt that we frequently use is not at all the same as pure unrefined Fleur De Sel. We should be more concerned about the processes, practices and procedures that go into producing regular table salt. What is added to regular salt is considerably more detrimental than the salt itself. Regular salt is mined from the earth in places where oceans once existed but are now dried out. It is mined using heavy machinery and bulldozers. It is then subjected to a number of chemical processes to wash and bleach it and finally it is oven dried in industrial facilities. The ingredient list of regular salt also includes worrying and harmful chemical additives such as anti-caking agents.
In stark contrast Fleur De Sel salt is pure and unadulterated. This unprocessed salt comes from pristine clear and clean sea water salt ponds. The coarse salt crystals form at the bottom of the salt pans. Using the ancestral method the salt gatherer rakes these untreated salt crystals to the surface where the salt is placed in piles and allowed to air dry under the sun in order to preserve the naturally occurring enzymes. Nothing is added and nothing is removed. No preservatives or any other chemical is added. The rakes that are used are wooden and no metal is every allowed to come in contact with the salt. This natural product is simply acquired from the bountiful organic salt farms. They are subject to the strictest quality controls. The method used follows an authentic and time-honored tradition, which is authenticated and assured by vigorous purity and quality monitoring.
