Our Hawaiian red salt comes from the Pacific island of Molokai. The Pacific water is filtered and then evaporated using solar energy. The salt crystals are mixed with mineral clay extracts. It gets the red colour from the mineralized volcanic soil in Hawaii that contains the iron oxide.
The Hawiaian red salt is an essential ingredient for large festivals where roast meats are served. It is part of Native Hawaiian cuisine and is used in traditional dishes such as kalua pig, poke, and pipikaula (Hawaiian jerky). It was also traditionally used to cleanse, purify and bless tools, canoes, homes and temples.
