Hawaiian sea salts offer a combination of color, lots of minerals, and a varying grain size that makes them some of the most versatile salts available. Red alaea salt, black salts infused with activated charcoal, green salt infused with bamboo leaf extract, and plain, high-quality white Hawaiian sea salts are all available at The Meadow.
Hawaii has a rich salt producing history that stretches back long before Europeans landed on the Island. Today, some salts that are sold as “Hawaiian” are made elsewhere, and processed to look like traditional Hawaiian salts. Virtually all the “Hawaiian salts” sold around the world (including in Hawaii!) are based on industrial sea salts from manufacturers such as Cargil, and then passed off as authentic Hawaiian salt.
We’ve written a new guide that will tell you all about Hawaiian sea salt at The Meadow, including descriptions of the types of Hawaiian salts, the history of Hawaiian salt, and how Hawaiian salt is made.
