About Black Lava Sea Salt
Saltverk are a sustainable producer of flaky sea salt. This black lava sea salt is created from Icelandic geothermal flaky sea salt coloured with activated charcoal from volcanic lava stones. Its dark colour makes a dramatic contrast when sprinkled on foods. In addition to its stunning flavour, the nutritional advantage of Black Lava salt is that it is infused with activated charcoal which assists the body in removing harmful impurities, and is exceptional in essential minerals to help maintain the body's normal functions. This scrumptious salt adds a truly unique flavour to roasted vegetables, soups, stir-fry dishes and on the barbeque. Try it sprinkled over white chocolate for a stunning dessert.
Here's the suppliers description of the processes. "We pump the sea-water to open pans where we pre-heat it until it becomes a strong brine, a salinity level of 17-20%. Then we boil the brine until white crystals appear on the surface and slowly fall to the bottom of the pan. Then we draw the pan and drain any remaining liquid. Then it is dried and put into packaging. During this whole process we use 206 °F hot geyser waterfrom the hot springs of Reykjanes where we use it in the pre-heating, boiling and drying process of our salt. Geothermal energy is the sole energy source used, which means during our whole process we leave zero carbon footprints on the environment and no CO2 and CH4 emissions."
