Our artisanal, hand-harvested evaporative salts, found along Africa's coastlines, are considered some of the purest and most flavorful in the world. These salts are extracted through solar evaporation, using ancient techniques, thousands of years old; preserving their natural mineral content and providing a unique taste and texture.
Our salts are not only culinary delights, but they also represent the rich history and culture of the African continent.
Table salt is highly refined with additional ingredients such as iodine and caking agents.
As a contrast, artisanal salts, specifically N/UM salts are unrefined and hand-harvested to preserve their mineral content (i.e potassium, calcium, magnesium). Artisanal salts also offer a superior flavor and a wide range of taste, colors and flavors, providing a great opportunity to elevate everyday dishes.
When assessing and tasting the quality and flavor of salt, look for a pure, smooth, and consistent texture; a clean and salty taste and aroma, and the presence of trace elements that can provide a unique taste and color.
Additionally, for artisanal salts, pay close attention to the origin, method of production and unique characteristics such as unique color, texture, flavor and aroma.
