Himalayan Pink Salt is among the purest and healthiest salts on earth. Its deposits are mined from a pristine, 250 million year old seabed, deep below the highest peaks in the world. The redish/pink hue is a result of 84 trace minerals including iron, potassium, magnesium and calcium, making it nutrient packed compared to standard table salt, which lacks any natural minerals. Himalayan Pink has a smooth and flavorful taste compared to the more harsh taste of traditional processed salt. This all-purpose salt can be used as a table salt replacement to bring out the natural flavors of any food.
