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 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 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.
