Williams-Sonoma Finishing Salts Collection

Salt is the world's most effective flavor enhancer, and these four artisanal salts are among the best in the world. Each of the salts in our hand-selected sampler is famous for its distinctive flavor, color and texture. Use any of them as a finishing salt, sprinkled over foods just before serving. Haleakala Red Sea Salt: Has a dramatic color that comes from alae, a mineral-rich red clay. Its flavor is mellow and nutty, with a subtle briny sweetness. Kilauea Black Sea Salt: Has a subtly smoky, sweet-salty flavor and an obsidian color that comes from activated charcoal, a prized digestive. Australian Pink Salt: From the Murray River, this salt has a rich yet delicate flavor, the perfect finishing touch for seafood, meats, vegetables and salads. Cyprus Flake Sea Salt: Harvested by hand from the Mediterranean, where it naturally forms into intricate geometric-shaped flakes with a clean, mild flavor. Includes Haleakala Red Sea Salt, Kilauea Black Sea Salt, Australian Pink Salt and Cyprus Flake Sea Salt. Made in USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

3 not 4 dyed finishing salts
November 1, 2013
I ordered the finishing salts collection and received the 3 salts pictured; but not the Haleakala Red Sea Salt as described on the website summary. Out of curiosity, I poured a little water over the Kilauea Black Sea Salt and the color did come off leaving white/clear salt crystals and colored water. Although, all 3 salts are different and have a nice taste; I do question the authenticity. Also the word "artisanal" in their description implies handcrafted not natural. Therefore, I don't feel they are worth the expense and "Ozomlo" may be correct about the ingredients being unhealthy.
Pros: Texture, Flavor
Cons: Disappointing, probably not authentic

Fake dyed salt...
August 2, 2013
Let's stop this nonsense. Pour water over these salts and watch the black, red and pink dyes run. Tossed out the whole lot and went back to good old Malden sea salt. Good salt doesn't need additives.
Cons: Unhealthy, Ingredients

let me explain...
In reply to the comment... when water was poured over the salt, the colored salt didn't immediately dissolve, the dye ran leaving regular white/clear salt crystals AND colored water.

How does your test show any sort of fake dye?
Given that the minerals present in the sea salts that would give it the inherent color and flavor are probably water soluable I don't understand how adding water and having the colored salts dissolve and color the water shows that the product is dyed. I see absolutely no evidence of fake dye in this product. I find your review incredibly unhelpful.
