An alluring combination of pure Pacific sea salt and activated charcoal made from coconut shells, Hiwa Kai™ Black Hawaiian-Style Sea Salt is an exotic, sultry sea salt that will remind you of the famous black sand beaches of Hawaii. The rich, black color and crunchy grains add a dramatic finish to any meal and hold up nicely in saucy, full-flavored dishes. Try Hiwa Kai as a finishing salt on seafood, grilled pork, or roast chicken—any place that the striking, jet-black color will stand out, even on the rim of a cocktail! The intensity of the salinity makes Hiwa Kai a beautiful replacement for plain table salt, which also gives it adaptability in a range of dishes.

Fine Grain: Fine grain Hiwa Kai is a silky, fine grain sea salt that is perfect as a colorful replacement for table salt or as a vivid, visual finishing salt for salads & seafood.

Coarse Grain: The rough, medium-sized crystals are not suited to most salt grinders, but are an artful way to rim a cocktail or bring added color and texture to grilled meats. Robust and dramatic, Coarse grain Hiwa Kai is as tasty as it is attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome & Unique Product I saw this black salt in a Hawaiian Resort this last summer. In the beginning I thought that my drink has some kind of weird dirt / dust in the rim, but surprisingly it was salt! So i even asked the bartender about this product, he even let me take a picture of the container. So when We came back to L.A. I was in the mission to find it. It wasn't hard to find the company online, I have to say, great, great, GREAT transaction, easy, I'd picked the item that I want it, pay with my card and in less that 4 business days I was receiving the package. Great price for the 16oz pouch, my mother in law love it! Since niw she can see the salt in her food without over pouring. Now in my past family gathering everybody keeps Us asking about that and some of them even said that they going to order some for them! Very pleased with this purchase :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very special salt! Buy some Marcona almonds (Costco), put in a bowl, add small amount of White Truffle Oil & this Black Hawaiian Sea salt, mix. You won't believe what a special treat this is & every one of our friends rave about these. I found it at Whole Foods & figured out how to do it myself. Yum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product I bought my first container ofI Hiwa Kai Black Hawaiian-Style Sea Salt about 3 yrs ago at a local farmers market on the Big Island of Hawaii. I l, ove the taste, I use less because it's so full of flavor it doesn't take as much. I was so glad to find that I could order it online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Did Not Know I have been to Hawaii dozens of time visiting relatives and doing government work. I ran across the orange salt, but had never seen the black salt for sale anywhere in Honolulu. Now I have both. Salt may be just salt, but I find location salts exotic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique! This black salt fooled me at first, it looks like black pepper in the cupboard. The small grains won't work in a standard salt shaker, next time I'll buy the fine grain. Just a little of this salt goes a long way. It's really terrific salt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome flavor enhancer My husband and I had Hawaiian Black Lava Salt in a recent cruise, so I ordered this item hoping it was similar to what we had. Love it! It really brings out the flavor of the food and doesn’t require much!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Color With my poor eyesight I could not see the white salt! This black is PERFECT for people of my age "70". I use Tabasco and your black salt and my meals are to my taste now! Thanks for such a product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was hoping for in a black salt! I am utilizing this salt for protection purposes and most black salts I have found have a lot of "dust" or residue. These salts are perfect! Thank you! I will be purchasing again.
