Hawaiian Alaea sea salt is the traditional Hawaiian sea salt mixed with a purified volcanic red clay giving it a hypnotic crystalized red color. Hawaiian sea salt, like all seat salt, is non-processed and rich in trace minerals directly sourced from the seawater. Alae is an iron-oxidated Hawaiian red clay that enriches the sea salt and gives it the red hue. It’s a sacred clay that was used for cleansing and healing throughout Hawaiian culture. Salt is a staple in nearly every recipe and on every home or restaurant table. Hawaiian natives use Hawaiian Alaea sea salt to preserve meat, fish, and pork. It has a lower sodium content than table salt making it a little healthier in your recipes. It’s the best salt to use with any Hawaiian inspired dish such as Hawaiian shrimp, Lau Lau pork, and pulled pork with pineapple.
