Sel Gris French Grey Sea Salt is hand harvested from the clay-lined salt ponds in the Guérande region of France, giving it a soft grey color and mineral-rich moisture.
One of the most well-known gourmet French sea salts, Sel Gris has a crunchy texture that works well with grilled and braised meats, roasted potatoes and other root vegetables.
Though iconic in French cuisine, the characteristic briny flavor pairs nicely with a wide variety of foods, from roasted nuts to stews and salads to cookies, and is one of the most popular salts for topping homemade chocolate caramels. Sel Gris is a delicious, mineral-rich substitute for everyday table salt, and comes in a variety of grain sizes to fit every kitchen.
Because of its mineral complexity and coarse grain size, sel gris can be used both as a cooking salt and a finishing salt. Being much denser than table salt, but easily traded for table salt, there is a lot more salt in an equivalent volume of sel gris.
Sel Gris Fine: The same Sel Gris as our other varieties, Sel Gris Fine is stone ground by hand until it reaches a fine consistency that is a great replacement for the everyday table salt in your salt shaker. Try it in pasta water, to bake cookies or cupcakes, or as a mineral-rich addition to spice blends and BBQ rubs.

Purity: Ultimate purity from harvest to manufacturing by running the raw salt through a proprietary combination of sifters, aspirators, rare-earth magnets and metal detectors. This process detects and filters the unwanted materials from the salt. After this initial screening, the salt is ready for the most thorough process: the Optically Clean technology, a highly innovative operation at the salt that inspects every single grain of salt for discoloration or any remaining unwanted foreign material.
The quality of salt can be determined by its color—most commonly, the whiter the better. However, some varieties carry specific trace minerals that give grains a uniquely beautiful color. On the contrary, undesired materials can affect the color as well.
