    Did you know that in addition to fleur de sel and other gastronomic salts, there is a type of sea salt that is ideal for daily use in the kitchen? Sea salt is often used for culinary preparations or for adding a finishing touch to a sophisticated dish, but people quickly reach for traditional cooking salt for their daily cooking. These three reasons prove that sea salt is your perfect partner in the kitchen every day.

    Purely natural

    MARSEL_BUS_ASSORT7Sea salt, it goes without saying, is salt that comes from the sea. You don’t need anything other than sea water, wind and sun. Sea water is collected in salt marshes in which the sea salt is deposited due to evaporation. This sea salt is harvested and cleaned. It is a centuries-old method that is still kept alive today. You cannot find a more ecological and sustainable method to produce salt.

    Unique taste experience

    Sea salt is slightly ‘richer’ than regular table salt. Although both salts mainly consist of sodium chloride, sea salt has a more complex composition. Apart from sodium chloride it also contains minerals and trace elements. These give sea salt a different texture and its irregular grain structure provides its special taste.

    Natural variety of grain sizes
