A mini version of the Five Salt Sampler Pack at 2-oz. each type of salt is being sold at a very low price. Not all salts are the same. The sampler packs will give consumers a taste of the differences in texture, color, solubility, saltiness and health benefits of salts. The Pink Himalayan Salt is hand-mined from ancient underground salt deposits in Pakistan. Its color is from very light to deep red and considered one of the purest salts for its mineral contents. It can be used in cooking and finishing gourmet foods. The Black Lava Hawaiian Salt on the other hand gets its coloring from infused charcoal used during the process of salt production. Like the Red Alaea Salt, the Black Lava Salt is harvested in the islands of Hawaii and contains natural trace minerals derived from volcanic sediments. The Red Salt gets its color from baked molten clay called Alaea. Fleur de Sel and Sel Gris are both harvested from brine in salt evaporation ponds in France. These types of salt are scraped off from the surface of the water before the salt crystals sink. The process involves the evaporation of brine and collected into shallow ponds until most soluble and insoluble impurities have been separated from the salt by sinking or evaporating. Fleur de Sel is much finer than the Sel Gris which is coarse and granular and so it is best served as finishing for salads. Nevertheless, it is very flexible as it dissolves gently on any dish. The coarse and chunky Sel Gris is good for roasting and in preparing fish and meat for smoking.
