Black Lava Sea Salt is a little more sulfuric and smoky in taste. It is sourced directly from Hawaii. The charcoal component within the lava salt acts as a detoxifier. This detoxifying component binds to foods that cause bloating and helps to release fluid retention. Because of this detoxifying affect, this special salt also helps with hydration regulation. You can cook with it so simply use as a garnishing salt as it adds a beautiful flavor and a pop of health goth beauty onto any dish.
