Himalayan Rock Salt
Coming from a salt range in the foothills of the Himalayas, this pristine source of natural mineral salts has an impressive profile. A 100% natural product, Himalayan Rock Salt is said to be the purest form of whole salt on the planet and derives from deposits that are approximately 250 million years old. Amazing.
We do need to consume salt – we just need to be mindful not to have too much. Dietary guidelines advise we should limit our sodium intake to <2.3 grams per day.
Himalayan Rock Salt contains small amounts of a number of essential minerals including calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium as well as trace minerals such as iodine, manganese, selenium and zinc.
This salt is delicious; it provides a more complex flavour to food. It can of course be used in normal cooking where recipes require salt and it can also be used for remedial practices. It is said to complement the easing of respiratory conditions (by adding to a spray to clear congestion from the sinuses for example) as well as being a detoxifying agent when added to a bath.
No need to grind or break down, our fine Himalayan Pink Rock Salt is ready to use.
