Hawaiian Red Salt, 8oz, Live Live & Organic
Hawaiian Alaea Salt is dark red salt due to its iron content.
This comes from the clay where it is harvested. Some red clay is contained in this salt. It is a traditional salt used by the people of the Hawaiian Islands and a must have for many Hawaiian dishes. The red color, when sprinkled on dishes as a finishing salt adds nice color.
Hawaiian Alaea Salt is an unprocessed sea salt containing natural minerals, all of which are found in the sea water. Small amounts of harvested red Hawaiian clay are added to enrich the salt. The red color comes from the large amounts of iron oxide present.
The flavor of the Hawaiian salt is a little mellower than the French Grey sea salt. It is not quite as salty. That is because of the large amount of minerals.
