Vanilla Bean Sea Salt is made with genuine Tahitian Vanilla Beans mixed with a delicate hand-harvested sea salt. The combination of salt and vanilla accentuates sweet desserts.
Vanilla is the fruit of an orchid plant, which grows in the form of a bean pod. Although there are over 110 varieties of vanilla orchids, only one, Vanilla planifolia, produces the fruit which gives us 99 percent of commercial vanilla. Another genus, the Vanilla tahitensis grown in Tahiti, does produce fruit with a more pronounced aroma, but debatedly less flavor. Vanilla orchids are grown in tropic climates, primarily Mexico, Tahiti, Madagascar, Reunion, Mauritius, Comoro, Indonesia, Uganda, and Tongo, with three-fourths of the world's supply coming from Madagascar.
These natural Sea Salts are the result of our search to combine sea salts with pure natural flavor. When we first thought of infused flavored salt blends, we wanted to fuse natural ingredients together in a way that hadn't been done before. We imagined putting fresh ingredients inside the sea salt without compromising our signature purity. After a long-developed proprietary process, the result is Artisan Salt Company's Fusion Flavored Sea Salt. This is the new generation of gourmet seasoning.
