Gourmet African Salts to the World

Gourmet African Salts to the World

N/UM salts stand out for our commitment to quality, versatility and education. Our artisan, 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. Each grain brings a story of its origin to your table. 

What Makes Gourmet Salts Different?

What Makes Gourmet Salts Different?

Gourmet salts, such as our fleur de sel, flaky sea salt, desert and hot spring salts stand apart from regular table salt due to their unique flavors, textures, and mineral content. Harvested meticulously from the coasts of Botswana and South Africa; these salts undergo minimal processing to retain their natural trace minerals and moisture.

Fleur de sel, for instance, is known for its delicate texture and ability to dissolve quickly, making it an excellent finishing salt for both savory and sweet dishes. The flaky structure of sea salt flakes, on the other hand, adds a crunchy texture to dishes, enhancing the eating experience with its tactile satisfaction.
