Sea Salt, Hawaii Kai's Palm Island Gourmet, Black Lava
Hawaii Kai’s Palm Island gourmet sea salts are a unique combination of taste, mineral content, intriguing varietals and affordability making them hard to compete with and certainly incomparable. Many specialty sea salts are mined from land deposits, not Palm Island. It begins as freshly harvested Pacific Ocean salt—with no additives, nothing artificial. It is then heated to remove impurities, as are the salts of many well-known brands such as Maldon and La Baleine. The next step in the process is what separates Hawaii Kai from all others. After many painstaking years of research they have developed an extraordinary mineral-rich tonic they call Ocean Essence™. More information on back label.
"It takes one ton of seawater to produce 77 pounds of sea salt."
- Nancy Gove, Hawaiian sea salt farmer
They carefully blend this pure, unaltered, super-concentrated fluid into the Pacific Ocean salt through a proprietary multi-step technology, thus restoring natural flavor complexities and trace minerals, which are lost in the heating process. This results in a marvelously sheen and crunchy textured salt that is second to none. This salt is called White Silver and is the basis to their Red Gold and Black Lava sea salts.
