Hawaii salt - black - an unforgettable taste explosion
Black Hawaiian salt is of outstanding importance among international gourmets and in fine cuisine. Because this special salt actually has it in it. In addition to sea salt as the main ingredient, Hawaii Salt black has a very special mix of valuable minerals and natural additives. Vegetable activated charcoal is responsible for the particularly luminous black colouring. It is also the activated carbon that makes the black lava, as the salt is also called, sparkle really nicely black in the sunlight. Other names also common for black Hawaiian salt are lava salt or black pearl.
The activated carbon in black Hawaiian salt is of natural origin. It is highly clean and acts as a so-called antioxidant but also promotes digestion. The island of Molokai is the origin of the black Hawaiian salt, so it is extracted there. However, other regions where black salt is extracted are now known. The manufacturing processes are often very similar. Seawater is first filtered from the Pacific Ocean for this purpose. Afterwards, the typical black salt is obtained in an elaborate and closed system. Subsequently, vegetable activated charcoal is added to the salt, which gives the special salt it's black colouring.
Black lava salt also contains activated charcoal, which is beneficial for:
Removing toxins: Activated charcoal is often the first treatment administered for different kinds of poisoning due to its well-documented ability to remove toxins from the body. It can even help to counteract the effects of toxic mould on your health. Fights premature ageing: Activated charcoal can help to support the health of the adrenal glands in addition to protecting the cells of the kidneys and liver. Treating gas and bloating: Activated charcoal can bind to constituents in food that cause gas thus preventing flatulence.
In fine cuisine, this wonderful salt is also used to season a wide variety of marinades, sauces, salads or grilled meat, fish or scallops. Not only top chefs appreciate the unusual taste, but also the exotic colour and the decorative character of this salt. It is therefore also in the cooking's design and imagination to what extent Hawaii salt black serves to refine the taste of dishes or to make them optimal and visual. As a rule, it is used very sparingly, but this is already quite sufficient to give many tasty dishes a fascinating visual touch.
In the mouth, the black Hawaiian salt first stands out due to its rather crispy consistency, before the typical nutty and slightly salty taste can unfold in its entire width. The special Black Sea salt with a high proportion of activated charcoal is extremely tasty and often has some residual moisture. For this reason, it is not suitable for use in salt mills or only after complete drying. Black lava salt is typically suitable for finishing, which means that it does not cook long with the food, but is only added to the dishes shortly before serving. This is why it is also suitable for frying or grilled meat at the barbecue, for example. In order to experience the own taste of black Hawaiian salt on your own palate, it is recommended to enjoy a few salt grains on a slice of black bread with a splash of olive oil.
