The distinct grey hue of these salts comes from the clay lined salt ponds of Guérande, France, where the seawater is evaporated. The clay also adds valuable minerals and nutritional value not found in any other salt. The coarse grain size is most often used for cooking and baking, adding a nice crunch and flavor to meats and vegetables.
During harvesting salt farmers of Le Trésor follow strict harvesting rules as prescribed in the NEP specifications. This ensures the purity and cleanliness of the salt. While there are many grey sea salts on the market today, only those having The Nature et Progrés (NEP) certification are sure to be free from pollution and other contaminates.
