Located in the Pays de la Loire, on the Atlantic coast, the municipality of Guérande is known for its first-class salt. It also comes from the salt flower of Le Paludier de Guérande, which is a first-class, additive-free finger salt to finish any food.
The salt flower is formed by the evaporation of so-called œillet basins filled with seawater. The foam-like salt crystals are carefully collected and left in the sun to dry. The dried salt flower is very fine and has an excellent taste. In addition, it is rich in minerals. The name of the salt flower refers to the special floral aroma of the salt, which arises from the microscopic algae left in the salt.
Le Paludier de Guérande’s salt flower has an IGP certificate of genuine locality.
