Le Guérandais Guérande Salt harvested by salt workers can take on different forms: coarse salt, which is recognised by its large grey crystals, fine salt, also known as ground salt, which also comes flavoured with herbs, seaweed and vegetables, and the delicate flower of salt, the “caviar of the marshes”.
All these products are sold in supermarkets, hypermarkets, specialist distribution networks and in the export market, and each, in its own way, helps to add flavour to our food.

- With seaweed: with a subtle mix of three types of seaweed to give it a flavour of the sea, this salt will add delicate aromas to fish, shellfish, soups, sauces or even fish stocks.
