A Sea Salt Blend Packed with Hawaiian Heat
Black lava salt has key healthy minerals infused into the salts due to the medicinal properties of charcoal. However, original black lava salt found naturally also contains harmful substances like sulfur.
That did not stop Laura Cristobal Andersland from developing her own version of black lava salt—one without the dangerous impurities. She infuses food grade activated charcoal with fresh sea salt crystals to create salt blends that can help reduce gas, lower cholesterol, absorb stomach acid, and even prevent hangovers.
Laura uses her trademarked black lava salt for a number of Salty Wahine’s seasonings, but perhaps one of the most popular ones is the award-winning Hot Lava Salt. Winning first place for salt in the 2019 Artisan Flave Awards, Hot Lava blends the medicinal black lava salt with garlic and chili peppers, making it a perfect seasoning for a hot summer barbecue or dish of any season.
The volcanoes and warm weather makes it hard to not add a little heat to a few dishes. Hot Lava is perfect for any dish that needs just a little extra zing to make the flavors pop. The medium heat from the hickory smoked garlic and chili peppers provides just enough spice to “wow” your mouth without overdoing it. Plus, with its blend of charcoal-infused black lava salt, your taste buds won’t be able to get enough!
The Hot Lava salt is a medium-heat seasoning that can be used to add an extra kick to any dish. Some of our favorite ways to use this premium sea salt blend include:
