Traditional Alaea Hawaiian Red Sea Salt's unique flavor is ideal for seasoning a variety of foods. Hawaiian Salt is harvested from the sea surrounding the island of Molokai. As a small and isolated island, the ocean waters of Molokai remain pristine and unpolluted. These salts are harvested using the highest of standards through a slow and careful process of solar evaporation, allowing the salt crystals to form with the much desired trace minerals intact. Alaea Hawaiian Sea Salt is widely used in Hawaii as a key seasoning for many of their native dishes including the kalua pig, poke, and Hawaiian jerky. It's also used commonly for preserving. The growing popularity of the Alaea Hawaiian Salt has boosted the economy of the island of Molokai in recent years and we're pleased to offer this amazing salt.
There is reported to be over 80 trace minerals in this salt, all of which are minerals found naturally in this seas water. Hawaiian volcanic clay called "alae" is added to this salt to enhance the salt with iron-oxide which gives the salt its extraordinary red color. Though adding the alae clay does not affect the taste of the salt, it does increase the health benefits of the salt by providing a source of digestible dietary iron.
