The exquisite Afrina Mesologgiou is the local name for the flower of the salt , internationally known as fleur de sel.
It's a totally unrefined natural product. It contains 92 necessary minerals and trace elementsas opposed to refined salt which contains only two, due to chemical treatment.
At the Mesolongi salt marshes, we collect our completely unprocessed fleur de sel, which keeps its natural moisture and semi-white grey colour.
It’s local name “Afrina” is used only for Mesolongis fleur de sel , since only there the ap-propriate climate and soil conditions are found. (shallow waters, minimum waves, winds with low intensity, no sea bottom inclination). Over time, a thin crust of salt is created on the surface of the salt marshes. The low intensity winds of the area, move that crust at the sides of the marches and there it is being sun dried. Then qualified artisans collect that crust only by hand using a very old and traditional technique, making sure the quality and purity of the salt remain intact.
Its particular flavor and texture, in combination with its maximum perceived value, make it one high quality Greek gourmet product.
