Press Release   •   Nov 24, 2016 08:12 EST

Salt is a crystalline inorganic mineral formed by the combination of two elements, namely, sodium and chlorine. Gourmet salts are unrefined and high-quality salts used in exotic cuisines to enhance taste, flavor, texture and appeal of food. These are available in different sizes, colors and flavors, depending on the source of the salt. Moreover, these salts possess better solubility and also have high mineral content. Generally salts are classified as harvested and mined salt. Harvested salts are collected from sea water thorough evaporation either by solar or vacuum techniques. Coarse salt, fleur de Sel, flake salt, sel gris, Italian sea salt, and sea salt are some of the popular variants of harvested salts. Mined salts are collected from salt mines using techniques such as crushing of large mineral rocks containing salt to manageable sizes. These are then further screened and packaged as per requirements. Table salt and Himalayan pink salt are most popular variants of mined salts.
