Fleur de Sel

“Fleur de Sel” literally translates “flower of salt” and it is a kind of salt that is formed as a thin, delicate crust on the surface of seawater as it evaporates. The name comes from the flower like patterns of crystals in the salt crust. Fleur de Sel is considered the “caviar of salts” by chefs and foodies around the world, its delicate flavour and high concentration of minerals makes it the perfect finishing salt.

Fleur de Sel has been collected since ancient times and now, is used as a finishing salt to flavour and garnish food. The fine light crystals dissolve instantly when sprinkled into food and is one of those indispensable touches that really make a difference for some dishes.

In Mexico, it is known as Flor de Sal, and it has been produced since Aztec times from the Lagoon of Cuyutlán on the Pacific Coast. There is even a museum in Cuyutlán, dedicated to the history and technique of Flor de Sal production. Flor de sal is also harvested along the beaches of Celeste in Yucatan, Mexico where Mayans cultivated salt 1,500 years ago for its distribution throughout Mesoamerican trade routes extending to Guatemala, Central America and the Caribbean.

The Mexican Flour du Sel used in the Charred Corn & Lime is from Cuyutlán in the Pacific Ocean. Its delicate nature makes it a perfect finishing ingredient for salads, fish, meat, fruit and vegetables. Try it and season your food as a top chef!

When your blood sugar levels are running high, your body will try to flush excess sugar out of your blood through the urine. As a result, your body will need more fluids to rehydrate itself. Drinking water can help the body with flushing out some of the glucose in the blood. Just a word of caution to be sensible with drinking water; water intoxication (which can result in death) is possible if a number of litres water are drunk in a short space of time. This is rare and quite difficult to manage but it pays to be aware of this.


Getting a good night’s sleep may seem like an impossible goal when you’re wide awake at 3 a.m., but you have much more control over the quality of your sleep than you probably realize. Just as the way you feel during your waking hours often hinges on how well you sleep at night, so the cure for sleep difficulties can often be found in your daily routine.

Another option is small weight-loss groups based at universities or medical centers. Run by psychologists, nutritionists or other weight-loss professionals, these programs last for a set number of weeks. Thanks to the individualized attention they provide, these groups may lead to greater weight loss than commercial programs, say some researchers. As yet, there have been no comparative studies to prove that claim.

Through research with mice and humans, scientists have found that brainy activities stimulate new connections between nerve cells and may even help the brain generate new cells, developing neurological “plasticity” and building up a functional reserve that provides a hedge against future cell loss.
