Blue salt is a coarse salt studded with sapphire-coloured rock crystals. It is extracted from mines of pure, unpolluted crystallised sea salt which have formed over 260 million years – meaning that it’s a finishing salt which oozes history and sophistication. One of the rarest and most precious of salts, Persian Blue is produced from a single seam running through an ancient salt lake bed in Iran. Its colour is due to an optical illusion, due to the movement of tectonic plates which results in the salt taking on the colour of sylvin, another mineral.
Blue Persian salt has a mild taste, which means that it won’t overwhelm delicate flavours. It has a strong coarse texture though, retaining a clean bite. It is used in High-end Restaurants due to its colour and sophistication.
