Due its origin, fleur de sel has unique qualities and characteristics that make it very easy to distinguish from common salt. The grains of fleur de sel are crisp and irregular sizes, but generally range from two to four millimeters. Because is naturally dried and does not have chemical additives to avoid the compaction, this kind of salt does not get wet. Therefore, the grain of fleur de sel is easily sprayed on the fingers and mixes well in liquids. Its flavor is more delicate, and does not have the bitter aftertaste that leaves the salt. Therefore,  wet salt with much coarser grains are not fleur de sel, the grains of  fleur de sel are harder and becomes moistened easily.
