TRAD Y SEL grey sea salt can be used for cooking, salting stocks, in traditional dishes such as pot au feu or stews, or for cooking shellfish, pasta or rice.
Because it is a moist salt, it is one of the best available for cooking in a salt crust. This cooking method gives meat or fish an incomparable moistness and brings a delicate flavour when mixed with herbs and spices before cooking.
Grey sea salt is available for retail sale in cardboard boxes with windows containing 500g/1.10 lb. or 1 kg/2.20 lb bags. The boxes are mainly for France, whereas the bags are used in Brittany, where the tradition of grey sea salt is common in gastronomy and culinary habits.

From coarse grey salt, TRAD Y SEL produces coarse dried salt, which is used as-is or mixed with herbs and spices. TRAD Y SEL uses a low temperature dryer to retain all the chemical properties of the coarse salt. Depending on the salt mill used, you can obtain ground salt with a variable grain size, but always crumbly and fondant.
Coarse dried salt is ready for use and offered as a refill in a box with pourer of 250g/8.82 oz. or a sachet of 500g/1.10 lb., for those who wish to do their own mixes.

Once dried, the coarse grey salt is the base for two other products: ground salt and fine salt.
Coarse dried salt is crushed to obtain ground salt. It does not flow and can be used to make homemade bread or other culinary dishes.
This salt is particularly recommended where coarse salt would not have time to melt, or where a regular grain size is required. It is the most suitable product for manufacturers - biscuit and cake making, cooked dishes, cured meats.

TRAD Y SEL Guérande fine table salt is made by drying, crushing and sifting coarse salt. Its regular grain size enables it to flow and not form clumps when using a shaker box.
It can be used as a condiment or for final seasoning during cooking. However, it is advised to avoid placing the box near water vapour as the salt may form clumps, in the absence of an anti-caking agent.
For manufacturers, it is particularly good for producing flavoured table salts or mixing with dried herbs or seaweed, or flavourings.
TRAD Y SEL fine table salt is offered in cardboard boxes with shaker lid. This packaging facilitates its use as a condiment.

During the transformation of grey sea salt, the drying and crushing operations produce another type of salt, destined for manufacturing activities - salt powder.
A by-product of the fine salt production cycle, very little powder is produced. Salt powder is not always recovered by processors, however TRAD Y SEL tries to recover and use all the raw materials purchased.
