This is a 250g jar of “fiore di sale,” or “flower of salt.

From the company:

This salt emerges in our saltpan as a soft foam in very particular atmospheric conditions, it is light and soft and it is deposited at the tank margins by the wind.

It is harvested and handmade with traditional methods; it is also devoid of any kind of chemical treatments and it keeps all its elements low in mineral content.

Light and soluble crystals characterize this white salt that has a smaller quantity of sodium chloride and a bigger quantity of potassium and magnesium than common salt; fluorine, iodine, sulphur and calcium make it more soluble and complete.

A small quantity of “fior di sale” is sufficient to salt dishes and, because of its organoleptic characteristics, it is used by the best chefs of the world to prepare sophisticated dishes.

Our saltpan, active since 1884 and called Moranella or Chiusa, is situated within the nature reserve of Trapani run by the WWF. It is usually frequented by different migrant species and it also gives hospitality to purple herons and principe grey parrots.

The saltpan is used only for ecological and biocompatible productions, exploiting natural elements such as the sun, the wind and the sea water evaporation. During the summer it is possible to feel with us, in the shining whiteness, the emotion of the salt harvesting that takes place with traditional systems
