This bulk sea salt is much whiter than the French, as the region experiences far less rainfall. Rainfall and storms cause the clay at the bottom of the salt pools to mingle with the salt and turn it grey. Because this salt is so wet, it is not suitable for grinders.
Salt farmers in Portugal adhere to quality standards for certified organic produce and consequently have been awarded the "Slow Food Award for the Defense of Biodiversity."
