Fleur de sel salt is a French word translated to the flower of salt. This form of salt is created when sea water evaporates leaving behind a thin layer of salt on the surface of the water. This layer is then carefully harvested with rakes or sieves gently to not destroy the thin beautiful flakes that are formed. The name of the salt is given due to the flower-like flakes formed.

This salt was traditionally formed by draining sea water into basins and then left slowly to dry in the sun where most of the last formed sinks to the bottom as ordinary sea salt while a little bit of it stays on the topmost layer where it is harvested from. Making fleur de sel is very labour-intensive and takes a lot of time to produce. Furthermore, Fleur de sel salt can only be made when it is very sunny and dry with low winds to not disturb the flake formation.


Fleur de sel is not processed in any way, therefore, does not change the purity and is all-natural. Those who seek a natural source of salt-free from additives and any other harmful additions to the salt should use fleur de sel. Fleur de sel is saltier than normal table salt and therefore has a unique taste and texture compared to other salts. This results in lower amounts of salt required overall and therefore lowers blood pressure and a lower risk of heart disease due to a reduced sodium intake.

It is commonly sprinkled over meat, salads, and desserts. Due to the salts’ high price because of production costs being high, the salt is used in small quantities and therefore only reserved as a finishing salt. Fleur de sel should not be added during the food’s cooking process as the heat makes the salt melt and therefore changes its properties making the salt less beneficial.
