So, what is sels de mer?

Sels de mer, or "sea salts" in English, are a type of salt that is obtained by evaporating seawater. These salts are harvested from various parts of the world, such as France, Portugal, and Spain, and each region's sea salt has a unique flavor profile due to its particular mineral content. Unlike table salt, which is heavily processed and stripped of its natural minerals, sels de mer retain trace elements like calcium, magnesium, and potassium, making them a healthier alternative. Their distinct texture and complex taste make sels de mer a popular ingredient in gourmet cooking and baking.
