    9.90

    “Afrina” is the local name for Fleur de sel. It takes its name from the Greek “afros” (αφρός) which means “foam/spume”.
    It is harvested a few days before the slat dries up completely. At that time, a thin layer of the firstly crystallized salt created at the surface of the salt fields –it is so thin, that is drifted away and dried by the wind. It is harvested exclusively by hand, using special wooden tools by qualified workers and from selected spots of the lagoon; this is a very old technique that few possess.
    “Afrina” is the purest form of salt, a premium quality product that is produced only in the salt fields of Messolonghi, a Ramsar and Natura protected lagoon. It’s crystals are crispy, aromatic, with special flavor that offers a unique taste.
    It is a 100% natural, unrefined, unprocessed product with great nutritional value, as it contains 96 necessary minerals and trace elements in ideal proportions. It’s superb for salads, raw food, pastry and as a finishing salt after cooking.

  • Natural Unrefined Coarse Salt 800gr

    8.90

    Natural unrefined salt is a treasure of the lagoon of Messolonghi, the gold of the sea. Ideal for every use in cooking.
    The production starts around March of April. During spring and summer, under the sun and the wind, the water slowly evaporates. At the end of summer, saturated water is channeled in the harvesting areas (known as “pans” in the local slang) where it is left to dry up completely. Harvesting takes place at that time, after which the salt is “washed” with brine, in order to preserve its natural components. What is left after the “washing” is salt in its purest form, maintaining its full taste and containing more than 88 minerals and trace elements (calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium, etc.), which are all necessary for our physical and mental health and in ideal proportions.
