Also known as Alaea, red Alaea is a naturally occurring, mineral-rich Hawaiian volcanic clay that is rich in iron. Alaea or Hawaiian Red salt has long been prized by native Hawaiians to provide extra nutrition and for its legendary health benefits. It has had a significant role in Hawaiian healing rituals and medicinal purposes and formally in the purification ceremony called hi’uwai. Hawaiian Pink Salt is made using smaller quantities of Alaea clay, both Red and Pink salts contain over 80 minerals and are used in Santosha Chocolate’s Rhodiola & Hawaiian Red Salt chocolate bar and the Coconut & Hawaiian Pink Salt chocolate bar.
