Fleur de sel, the nectar of salt marshes
The fleur de sel crystals in this blend are more delicate than those of coarse salt. The lighter and finer texture of the Ifaty fleur de sel allows it to penetrate foods better and dissolve more quickly. The fleur de sel from the Malagasy salt pans is the result of delicate artisanal work and ideal climatic conditions. This thin layer of white crystals forms on the surface of the water when it evaporates, under the combined action of the sun and wind.
A bit of history
The origins of Madagascar's fleur de sel
Nicknamed "Africa with Asian eyes," Madagascar is the island of giant trees, strange animals, and indigo blue lagoons. The Ifaty salt pans are located in a small paradise in the southwest of the island, far from any pollution. The Vezo, a semi-nomadic fishing community, have seen their resources dwindle, forcing them to turn to the extraction of another sea treasure: fleur de sel.
What's the difference between fleur de sel and salt?
Fleur de sel and salt can be distinguished by their production processes, taste, and texture. Fleur de sel is hand-harvested following the natural crystallization of seawater. This forms a thin layer of crystals on the water's surface, which is then harvested and sun-dried. In contrast, salt comes from salt mines or seawater and is refined to remove impurities. The texture of fleur de sel differs from that of salt. Indeed, fleur de sel has a coarser and grainier texture than regular salt, which has a finer and more uniform texture. Fleur de sel is more moist and crunchy than regular salt. Ordinary salt offers a more intense salinity note, while fleur de sel is characterized by a gentler and more subtle flavor. In terms of nutritional value, fleur de sel contains natural minerals that may be beneficial for health, while regular salt is usually refined to remove these minerals.
