Also known as Sel Gris, Gray salt is a “moist,” unrefined sea salt, usually found in the Brittany region of France’s Atlantic coast. Sel Gris is a natural, unrefined sea salt with a complex yet mild mineral taste. The light-grey color of the salt comes from the minerals absorbed from the clay lining the salt ponds.
Carefully farmed seawater is dehydrated until only mineral-rich brine remains. This brine is further dehydrated into the delicate, gray-colored, chunky salt. Harvested by hand from the most renowned salt marsh areas of France, its slightly gray-colored grains are versatile as a cooking or finishing salt.
