Fleur De Sel de Guerande is known as "the caviar of salts" and is accepted by many chefs as the best of all sea salts. The crystals form on the very top layer of the salt ponds and are harvested by barely skimming the surface. True "Fleur de Sel" can only originate from Guerande just as authentic champagne can only come from the Champagne region of France. it has a moist texture with a delicate, rich, sweet flavor that melts as it touches the tongue. Not only is this among the best tasting salts, it also has the highest meneral content and is naturally low in sodium making it delicious and healthy! Fleur de Sel is a natural compliment to steamed/grilled vegetables, salads and roasted or baked meats. Given that Fleur de Sel is both from Guerande and is certified Organic, this is truly the best of the best gourmet sea salts.
