Learn More About Salts:

Finishing salts, such as our Fleur de Sel, are the premier varieties of specialty salts. Harvested generally by hand in specific regions of the world, finishing salts are most admired for their unique textures—either moist crystals or delicate flakes. Both varieties provide a strong crunch and dissolve quickly, resulting in a burst of clean, mild flavor with each bite. These salts enhance the depth of natural flavors of in any dish, and enrich a table setting with beautiful, shimmering presentation. The various colors and flakes of finishing salts make gorgeous garnishes for every meal.

Flake salt, such as Murray River Flake salt, is a light crystal reminiscent of snowflakes. Seawater is evaporated using the natural processes of sun and wind, producing salt brine that is fed into an open evaporating pan. The brine is then slowly heated until delicate pyramid-shaped crystals of salt appear. The finished product is light, flakey sea salt. Flake salts can come in many different flake sizes, from large pyramid-shaped flakes to paper-thin, delicate flakes.

Smoked sea salts add a unique flavor to a wide range of dishes and are delicious for grilling or oven roasting—and an absolute must when cooking salmon! Unlike artificially infused smoke-flavoured salts, all of the smoked sea salts available at Olive Us are created using natural smoking methods. They are slow-smoked in cold smokers over real wood fires to infuse the salt crystals with 100% natural smoke.  These wonderful smoked sea salts add an authentic smokehouse flavour to meats, veggies, soups, salads, pasta, and sandwiches.

Our fused salts bind natural ingredients to sea salt crystals — every single one! The result is a flavour fusion more impactful than just a seasoning blend. What’s more is that everything about the process is 100% natural, from the ingredients to their perfect union. These fused salts are a perfect opportunity to get more creative with your cooking and even think beyond traditional pairings…Thai Ginger is divine on Asian noodles and fish, but try a sprinkle on popcorn with our Persian Lime Olive Oil…or even on vanilla ice cream! Another friendly reminder to always have fun in your kitchen.

Himalayan Pink Sea Salt

salt_himalayan1Olive Us has made sure to get the very highest quality 100% natural Himalayan salt available. With more than 84 trace minerals and none of the additives or aluminum compounds found in refined table salt, our Himalayan Pink Salt is one of the purest salts found on earth. Having been protected by hardened lava within the Himalayan salt beds for hundreds of millions of years, when it comes to purity and mineral content, no other salt compares. The many hues of pink, red and white are an indication of this salt’s rich and varying mineral and iron content.

Himalayan Pink Salt has been praised by health and culinary experts for centuries. Himalayan Pink sea salt can be used in everyday cooking to add flavour, texture and minerals to your dishes. It’s coarse enough that a little goes a long ways and is a healthy substitute for table salt as its health benefits are vast.

Available in fine or coarse grain (coarse grain requires the use of a salt grinder)

Murray River Flake Salt

salt_murrayriverMurray River salt crystals are light & delicate peach colored flakes with a wonderfully mild flavour. The texture is ideal for use as a finishing salt. The crystals melt quickly and evenly making Murray River flake salt ideal for finishing, roasting, and baking.

The Murray River is the greatest of Australia’s rivers. The source of its water is the snowy Australian Alps. Salt is a natural feature in many Australian landscapes. The Murray-Darling Basin’s low rainfall and high evaporation have combined to concentrate salt in the groundwater. This salt is produced naturally from the underground brines in the Murray Darling Basin. A red pigment, carotene, is secreted from the salt tolerant algae. The underground saline waters have been laying dormant for thousands of years. By utilizing these waters the environment is improved and a beautiful salt is produced.

Fleur de Sel

salt_fleurdesel1Our Fleur de Sel by Le Trésor is the crème de la crème of finishing salts. Fleur de Sel literally translates to “Flower of Salt” and is often called the “caviar of salts” by chefs worldwide.

True Fleur de Sel is made up of only “young” crystals, from the Guérande region of France that form naturally on the surface of salt evaporation ponds. Paludiers (the salt harvesters of the Guérande region) carefully rake the salt crystals using only wooden tools, true to traditional Celtic methods. The weather conditions must be just right to produce a good Fleur de Sel harvest, and the process can only be completed once a year, in the summer.

Sprinkle our Fleur de Sel atop salad, baked vegetables and grilled meat for a lightly salted flavour that enhances any food it goes on.

Fumée de Sel

comingsoon2_512x512Fumée de Sel® by Le Tresor is unlike any smoked sea salt available. Fleur de Sel is cold smoked with Chardonnay oak chips to preserve the mineral content and natural flavour of the salt.  Le Tresor Fumée de Sel is smoked from seasoned French oak wine barrels, which for years have been used in the aging of fine wines. The five to seven year old barrels are hand selected for wood smoking chips.

Starting with Fleur de Sel salt crystals that are hand raked in France and ending with the all natural smoking that is done in very small batches, this unique smoked salt is handmade from start to finish. The moist Fleur de Sel crystals readily absorb the natural smoked flavours of the oak and chardonnay. The crystals are smoked to a light toasty brown and have a deep smoke flavour without being bitter.
