Sea Salt, La Baleine
La Baleine French Sea Salt, Coarse or Fine
French "La Baleine" is a white sea salt.
This sea salt is evaporated to a sparkling white by sun and sea breezes, then washed in clear Mediterranean sea water. It is available in "gros" (coarse for grinding) or "fin" (fine for shaking out of a shaker).
La Baleine sea salt has been produced by Salins-du-Midi in the Aigues-Mortes saltworks, in Camargue, France since 1856. Salt has been produced on this site since before the Roman occupation. It is gathered from the salt-pan at Aigues-Mortes, a protected area covering some 10,800 hectares of untamed land, approximately the same size as inner-city Paris. On this natural site, where wildlife and flora remain untouched, salt has been gathered since Antiquity when the Roman engineer, Peccius, was in charge of production.
Ingredients: Sea Salt, Magnesium Oxide.
