Bamboo Jade

Bamboo Jade is a relatively new Hawaiian salt on the market. It owes its green colour and pleasant flavour to the addition of Bamboo leaf extract. This bamboo extract is also prized by the Chinese because it contains amino acids, antioxidants and vitamins. Bamboo Jade is best paired with most Asian cuisine including stir-fry, soup, and meat dishes.

Same or Different Type?

Different countries will often sell similar types of sea salt such as black lava Hawaiian or black lava Cyprus flake. Are these salts the same or different? Both contain black activated charcoal. However, the flavour may be different because of:

  • what was burned to create the charcoal
  • the origin; each brand of salt contains different amounts or types of trace minerals
