Local Flavors


Published:

Kona Sea Salt has released a new twist on a favorite local product with “Hawaiian Furikake with Kona Sea Salt”—a combination of furikake and deep-sea salt. “It turned out to be a pretty good marriage,” says Kona Sea Salt’s Theresa Fernandez. In fact, she adds, the sea salt enhances the furikake’s flavor without the hazards of MSG, making it a healthier alternative.   

The Kailua-Kona-based company’s main product, a natural deep-sea salt, has a lower sodium content than regular table salt. That’s because salt mainly consists of the two elements sodium and chloride; sea salt, however, contains essential trace minerals, including calcium and magnesium, which lower the sodium content in the sodium/chloride ratio. The taste? It’s not strong-flavored, but enhances the flavors of the food to which it’s added. For more information, visit konaseasalt.com.
