Product Description Additional Information reviews

Khoisan fleur de sel is sea salt with a unique crystal structure

Not all salts are the same and you can instantly recognise Khoisan fleur de sel by its crystal structure and snow-white colour. Khoisan fleur de sel has a subtle, harmonic flavour.

On South Africa’s west coast, where Khoisan fleur de sel is harvested, some 95% of the crystallising salt in salterns sinks to the bottom, which is then turned into sea salt. But when conditions are perfect – i.e. when the South African summer sun is at its hottest – then 5% of the salt crystallises on the surface of the water into beautiful ‘flowers of salt’ (fleur de sel). Before that layer of salt can sink to the bottom, these rare and valuable floating crystals are collected by hand, producing a mere 1 kg per 35 square meters.

Khoisan fleur de sel is Fairtrade certified

Khoisan Salt Trading is a small family-run company with a fulltime staff of around 13 people, all of whom receive a fair salary that is well above the South African minimum wage. During harvesting season the company takes on another 10 workers.

The company has a Fair Trade Fund, which pays for the tuition fees for the fulltime staff's children and covers educational programmes on interaction with other staff, health and safety.

Consequently, when you choose to use Amanprana Khoisan fleur de sel, you are not only choosing more vitality but you are also contributing to the improvement of the harvesters' life quality.

A few differences between Khoisan fleur de sel, Himalayan salt and Celtic salt

  • Origin

    Khoisan fleur de sel is harvested in Velddrif, a pure and beautiful South African fishermen's village, far from any industrial activity.

    As opposed to what its name leads you to believe, Himalayan salt comes from a Pakistinian salt mine, which annually produces approximately 350 million kg of salt. Celtic sea salt is unrefined sea salt from the Guérande region, harvested between the river mouths of the Loire and the Vilaine, near an aging and still-operational nuclear power plant.

    Khoisan fleur de sel is filtered naturally. On South Africa’s west coast, where Khoisan fleur de sel is harvested, the ocean waters are filtered through an underground 2,000 meter barrier of limestone, quartz and shell beds. This permeable layer of the earth (known as an aquifer) naturally filters the seawater, which is pumped up into shallow salt pans.

  • Natural Filtering

    Khoisan Fleur de Sel comes from natural filtering. By the West Coast in South Africa, where Khoisan Fleur de Sel comes from, the water from the Atlantic Ocean seaps through an underground 2.000 metre thick barrier of limestone, quartz sand and shell beds. This water-permeable earth layer filters naturally the incoming water. The underground salt water is then pumped up into a salt basin with various shallow saltpans.
