One of the most versatile and iconic hand-harvested finishing salts, Sel Gris Sea Salt is traditionally harvested in the Celtic method from the clay-lined salt ponds in the Guérande region of France. Beyond being valued for its soft grey color, mineral-rich content, and time-honored, Celtic harvesting techniques, its moderate moisture content paired with the selection of both all-natural & stone-ground grain sizes provides an unrivaled utility for both commercial kitchens & food manufacturers. SaltWorks® proprietary Optically Clean® technique & quality methods ensure that our all-natural Sel Gris is the highest quality, most pristine French grey sea salt available; ensuring its beauty when packaged in retail jars and its safety for food processors. The characteristic briny, saline flavor works well in a wide variety of wholesale bulk applications, from roasted nuts to topping baked goods.
Sel Gris Brut: The naturally large, irregularly-shaped crystals of Sel Gris Brut grain are the traditional, un-sifted size gleaned from the Celtic harvesting methods. This size is popular with food manufacturers for topping baked goods and confections, as well as snack foods that call for a topical salty crunch.
Sel Gris Tamisé (Coarse): Carefully sifted for medium grain consistency, the crystals of Sel Gris Tamisé grain are smaller & more evenly sized than the larger Brut grain. The most recognized grain size iteration of Sel Gris, Tamisé is ideal in commercial kitchens for use as a finishing salt, for grocery repack projects, or in spice & herb blends.
Sel Gris Fine: Stone ground by hand to a fine consistency, Sel Gris Fine grain offers restaurateurs and manufacturers a hand-harvested salt at a grain size suitable for the everyday gourmet commercial kitchen. This is a highly sought-after sea salt that is ideal for salt shakers, retail packaging, and manufacturing & processing ingredient use.
Sel Gris Velvet (Powder): Suiting very specific needs for food manufacturers and commercial kitchens, the consistency of Sel Gris Velvet grain is ideal for coating snacks like nuts, popcorn and chips. Stone ground to almost the consistency of baking flour, this grain size also melts quickly and evenly in soups & sauces for food service use.
