Fleur de sel or flor de sal is a salt that forms as a thin, delicate crust on the surface of seawater as it evaporates. Fleur de sel has been collected since ancient times, although it was traditionally used as a purgative and salve. It is now used as a finishing salt to flavor and garnishes food.
Flor de Sal is an Atlantic cream crystallized in clay salt flats, using the natural resources that are: seawater, solar, and wind energy.
These 3 elements of nature together provide a thin film of crystals that float on the pink bed of the butchers and from where they are removed daily and up to twice a day if the conditions are suitable for their formation.
At the time of collection, the fleur de sel is deposited in perforated boxes to drain and dry in the saline itself, then stored in a warehouse to finish draining.
Subsequently, it is placed in packaging for consumption without undergoing any type of transformation so that the consumer obtains a 100% natural product.
