Fleur de sels or flor de sels is a salty salt that forms when an evaporated sheet of sea water is formed as it settles on the soil. This type of salt deposits in coastal areas like the coasts of France and the Canary Islands. It has been harvested since ancient times, and has traditionally been used as both a salve and a purifier. It has today become more widely used as an additive to many foods and cosmetic products. It can be found in cosmetics, shampoos, hair styling products and various types of skin lotions and treatments. In this article, I will discuss fleur de sel and how it relates to our bodies.
The most well-known product containing fleur de sel is fleur de blanc. This is produced in the region of Brittany in France, although it can also be found in Germany, the Netherlands and, believe it or not, Spain. The most common way that the france harvesting fleur de sel is done is to harvest it from cliffs. As the water evaporates, the natural crystals which are contained in the seawater become airborne and fall to the ocean floor. Many companies harvesting this sea salt will then process the fleur de blanc into sheets which can be sold for various decorative purposes.
Many companies use fleur de sel in their cooking and baking recipes. One of the best known recipes for baking with this salt involves baking a white rice pie using the fleur de sel salt. The taste of this salty delicacy is unique because it has a fresh, briny taste. Due to the rarity and limited amount of this sea salt, this briny taste cannot be purchased in many grocery stores and must be obtained online.
In order for fleur de sel to retain its unique salty taste, it must be kept at room temperature. Because of the moisture that it contains, it is placed in a refrigerator. Once stored in the refrigerator, it will begin to dry out and lose its moisture level, which causes it to lose its salty taste.
In order to preserve its fresh flavor, fleur de sel should never be frozen. When it is defrosted, the fleur de sel will have lost some of its moisture. It will continue to lose moisture until it reaches a moisture level of around twenty percent. Once this happens, the salt crystals will begin to dry out and get brittle. Once this happens, the salt crystals will start to break down and produce less of an authentic caviar taste. Keeping the salt crystal dehumidified is important in order to keep its unique flavor from diminishing over time.
If you are planning to use fleur de sel as an ingredient in cooking, you should also understand that the salt marsh is an excellent alternative. Unlike sea salt, fleur de sel does not have to be purchased in large quantities. It can be used sparingly and will still maintain the flavor that is created by sea salts. In fact, sea salts are the most expensive when it comes to fleur de sel. Table salt marshes on the other hand, are much cheaper when it comes to cost. They may not contain the same amount of minerals and trace elements that table salt contains, however they still have their own distinct taste that cannot be duplicated with any other sea salts.
As fleur de sel dissolves in water, it pulls a variety of minerals from the seawater. These minerals include sulfur and chloride. Both of these are common elements found in a variety of different bodies of water. One of the ways that the salt dissolves in seawater is by using up excess dissolved oxygen. There are many times where people will notice a salty taste in their mouth after consuming a particular type of food or after taking a shower. This is because of the minerals that are pulled from the seawater.
Fleur de sels can also be purchased in dried form as fleur de sel harvested from the saltywaters of France. Although this form of the salt is not as commonly used as the mined salts, it still is very popular among those that consume the salt for its distinctive flavor. This flavor is created because of the lack of minerals found in the seawater that the salt was harvested in. Harvesting this type of fleur de sel from the France ocean was very difficult and did not prove to be an efficient means of harvesting the mineral rich salt. This difficulty with the harvesting process has led to the mineral in the salt being depleted over time.
