The salt from Piran, used by many top restaurants around the world, is ungrounded, unrefined and of exceptional taste, enhanced by the 'mother water' captured in crystals. The basic process is natural crystallisation on salt-fields, where salt is collected on a bio-sediment base of a few millimetres thickness called PETOLA, composed of minerals and micro-organisms. It is precisely due to its crystalline form that the Piran salt has a specific flavour – not explicitly salty, as with other kinds, but remarkably rich and distinct.
On average, its mineral composition is richer than that of refined salt and is suitable for all types of natural food. Modern cuisine is becoming increasingly fond of the original form of salt – crystal, which is as old as salt-making itself. It will suit dishes where the processing does not extinguish the original flavour but rather adds to it a scent of the area of its origin.
