UNIQUE MANUAL SALT EXTRACTION
Today, salt is extracted in Guérande in exactly the same way as the Celts did more than two thousand years ago. The mineral rich, soft and pure character owes the pure, unrefined Celtic sea salt to this unique process.
Guérande still has the ancient salt marshes built by the Celts. The seawater enters through an ingenious channel system in which the salt is led from one shallow basin to another. The entire process takes about two weeks. In the last basin, the seawater is then naturally dried up by the sun, leaving only the salt in the end.
Sodium has the property of crystallizing on top and the crystals are finer than other minerals and trace elements. The salt winners carefully scoop off this top layer of salt first, this top white salt layer is no more than 1 to 1.5cm thick and is called "fleur de sel". It is the most expensive, most exclusive Celtic sea salt because the top layer is so thin and therefore provides relatively little fleur de sel. Fleur de sel retains about 5% moisture, which also contributes to its unique character. The favorable conditions for extracting fleur de sel are only present for about one month a year.
Fleur de Sel contains a little more sodium than the bottom salt layer, but still has a surprisingly soft taste. Because of its fine structure, this "flower of the salt" is a tasty and very healthy table salt that contains many minerals and trace elements.
