This is the traditional salt used in Hawaii to season dishes. It is all-natural and rich in the trace minerals found in seawater. It was traditionally used to cleanse, purify and bless tools, canoes, homes, and temples for centuries in many of the traditional Hawaiian ceremonies.
In the 19th century, Hawaiians began producing large amounts of alaea salt using the salt-making techniques they learned from the Europeans and became a leading supplier to fishermen in the Pacific Northwest for curing salmon.
Alaea salt gets its unusual color from the volcanic baked alaea red clay that is found in Hawaii. Valuable minerals enrich the salt and make it even healthier. It is milder than most table salts and it combines with soups and sauces well. Alaea is wonderful for grilling meats – red clay seals in moisture and adds flavor.
We also recommend you to try mixing the coarse salt with herbs and use it as a spice rub.

KALA NAMAK COARSE
KALA NAMAK coarse salt - especially for vegan chefs
This salt is also known as the Indian Black Salt. When it is ground, it becomes brownish-pink and has a light taste of sulphur, which gives it a smoky, spicy, egg-like taste. Rich in minerals, especially iron. Kala namak has a very distinctive smell. The sulfur compounds cause the salt to smell like hard-boiled eggs.
Kala Namak is mostly used in Indian cuisine. It is used sparingly in the preparation of raitas, yogurt dishes, salads, and even fruit salads. Also a welcome addition as a finishing salt to fried noodle and rice dishes.
This salt is not recommended as cooking salt, as the sulphur tends to overpower; however, hardcore aficionados may dispute this! Kala Namak is very popular with vegans, vegetarians, and Ayurveda devotees, who appreciate its cooling effect and digestive qualities.
Kala namak has been used since ancient times and is said to have been identified by Maharishi Charak, the father of Ayurvedic medicine around 300 B.C.E. There are anecdotal claims from Ayurvedic healers that this type of black salt can be therapeutic. It is considered a cooling spice and it is used as a laxative and to help digestive issues and poor eyesight. Kala namak tends to have less sodium than regular table salt.
Salt is arguably the most important ingredient to enhance the flavors of your food. Without it, food just tastes bland. Chefs and gourmet cooks using gourmet sea salts produced in different parts of the world to enhance their special entrées with distinct flavors and textures.
