What is Himalayan edible/gourmet salt?

Himalayan edible/gourmet salt is mined in large slabs from the Himalayan foothills. The slabs are washed by hand and then broken down to the required sizes. The salt is screened for heavy metal deposits. Only the purest, safest Himalayan salt is passed as food grade salt which is edible.

Himalayan edible/gourmet salt has a pale pink to orange colour depending on the mineral content. The pink colour is from the iron oxide present in the salt. The salty taste of the salt is from sodium chloride. Including iron oxide and sodium chloride, Himalayan edible/gourmet salt contains 84 different trace minerals, some of which include potassium, calcium, sulphur, iodine, copper and magnesium.

Himalayan edible/gourmet salt has many benefits over refined table salt and even sea salt. The salt that is mined from 5000 feet below the Himalayas is free of contaminants from pollution that makes its way into the sea. When table salt is processed, nearly all the minerals and thereby the nutrient content are stripped from the salt leaving only sodium chloride behind. Table salt is also bleached in a process that could add toxic chemicals to the salt.

In comparison, Himalayan edible/gourmet salt retains its full nutrient value and has no toxic chemical added to it. The taste and flavour of the salt, when used in cooking, is also superior to table salt because of the variety of minerals present. It also has a number of health benefits that the table salt lacks.

Compared to table salt, the amount of sodium per teaspoon is much lower in Himalayan edible/gourmet salt, which makes it a safer option for people suffering from high blood pressure.
