Salt from Guérande (Loire-Atlantique,
44) comes from sea water evaporation in
salterns. There is no subsequent refining.
11.000 tons of salt are collected from June to
September by local workers.
Crystals have various colors depending on the
nature of the "oeillet" in which they're collected.
Crystals have a humid aspect and are very crumbly
because of high hygroscopicity of salt, magnesium
content and trace elements.
