Rich in iron oxide - Small amounts of harvested red alaea enrich the sea salt with iron oxide, adding a digestible dietary iron source. This is beneficial given the traditionally lower immune function, decreased energy, and lack of focus associated with low levels of iron oxide. It has a smooth, rich flavor.
Hawaiian red alaea salt has a distinct flavor, which makes it a valued ingredient in cooking. While most salts lose intensity as they cook, Hawaiian sea salts retain their bold qualities throughout the cooking process. The stronger flavor also allows the consumer to use the salt more moderately and get an equally satisfying taste.
Native Hawaiians believed that the Red Alaea Clay gave the salt its spiritual power; to this day, it is still used in traditional ceremonies, ritual blessings, and purifying and healing purposes. This salt is the perfect all-natural, colorful alternative to conventional bath salts.
