The black sea salt is one that I found puzzling. Why was the salt black? I knew that some of the beaches in Hawai’i were black from lava but how could the salt be black? Well, it’s because they add charcoal as an additive. Ahhh….. Why add charcoal, you ask? Good question, La Diva wants to know the answer as well.
I went to their website and it only said this:
According to the package, Some of the salt comes from Molokai (Hawaiian Sea Salt) while the company blends other salt (Natural Pacific Sea Salt) along with their “mineral-rich Ocean Essence” TM which includes ocean electrolytes, trace minerals and elements. Yeah, whatever, but DOES IT TASTE GOOD?
