Product Details

The highest quality organic finishing salt from Guérande, France! Purchase affordable small quantities from the bulk section or invest in your own 5 lb bag for the most impeccable & delicious, highest-quality eating experience of your life! 

Comes in 1 oz bulk bags for $1.50/ounce (1 ounce = 6 teaspoons)

Deemed by David Lebovitz as the finest salt in the world and his personal favorite!

How to use: sprinkle it over your food just before serving; reserve it for the final flourish (David Lebovitz recommends using on leafy green salads, meats and fish, or sprinkled over slices of cool melon or pineapple. He also recommends sprinkling it on dark and milk chocolate. He also writes that those concerned about salt intake: a week's worth of using finishing salts for two people is only about 1 teaspoon. Junk food and many pre-packaged foods are loaded with salt, so those are what you may wish to avoid. Fleur de sel is also reportedly lower in sodium than ordinary table salt.) 

SALT AND ORGANIC CLASSIFICATION

Unfortunately, there isn’t an organic certification for salt in the United States. The USDA classifies salt as a mineral—not a living thing with carbon compounds. As a result, we do not have this official recognition for our salts here in the United States. Many other countries have certifications for organic sea salts, such as Nature et Progrès in France. Sadly, the USDA does not currently recognize these certifications.

The international certifications are very stringent and guarantee the highest quality salts. For example, Nature et Progrès mandates that only wooden tools are used in salt harvesting, a process completed entirely by hand. The taste remains pure because no metal instruments are used to gather or package the sea salt. The ponds are located in a nature reserve and are required to be a safe distance from roads and industry to help guarantee that they remain free of pollution. Only exceptionally clean seawater is used. No purification or processing of the harvested salt is tolerated, and the salt, when analyzed before distribution, must fulfill very high standards in chemical analysis.

HOW ARE THE ORGANIC SEA SALT CERTIFICATIONS DEFINED?

Nature et Progrès Certification - France

France's certification is awarded to harvested and processed salt according to Organic methods and standards. Nature et Progrès is the highest and most stringent level of certification allowed. The quality chart guarantees full traceability, including the origin. The producer is identified and regularly controlled by the independent certifying body. The salt is unrefined and all-natural, and is harvested in a protected, non-polluted environment. The ponds are located a minimum of 500 meters away from main roads and are free from pesticides, chemical residue, industrial fumes or air pollution. Respect of product quality from harvest to final packaging is of utmost importance. The salt harvesters use only untreated wooden or polyethylene tools. It is mandatory that there is protection between the ground and the salt, and the salt must be harvested with non-polluting equipment.

Breton® Sel Gris, Fleur de Sel and French Grey Bath Salts are made exclusively with Nature et Progrès inspected and approved sea salts.
