Le Paludier Guérande Grey Salt is a unique grey colored, coarse salt that is hand-harvested using traditional harvesting methods. After harvesting, it is simply dried in the sun. The grey color stems from its rich mineral content that is retained from lack of refinement.
Le Paludier Guérande workers scrape only the top layer of salt that forms on the top of the salt beds. Very rare and of outstanding quality, the salt is collected with great care using a “lousse” and then simply left to drain in the sun. This delicate salt is comprised of moist, flaky and textured kernels that have more mineral complexity than table salt. Best used as a finishing salt.
