OM NATURAL HIMALAYAN ROCK SALT 500G

What is Himalayan rock salt?
Himalayan rock salt is salt that is mined from a mountain range that is found in Pakistan in the Punjab region. The salt is from a sea, but a sea that existed millions of years ago during the Cretaceous and Permian eras. The sea became landlocked and the water evaporated leaving behind landlocked salt deposits that are now mined. Minerals that can be present aside from sodium chloride include chromium, copper, zinc, iron, and lead. Up to 10 elements have been found when Himalayan rock salt has been analyzed. Salt may also contain magnesium, potassium, calcium, and sulfates.

Extraction of Himalayan salt:
Salt does not have to be extracted from water since the water evaporated millions of years ago. This means the salt has to be excavated from the mountains where it is trapped. Traditional methods are used by miners to remove the salt.

How to use Himalayan rock salt?
You can cook with Himalayan rock salt just like you would with regular table salt. Put it in sauces and marinades or add it to your food at the dinner table.
Pink Himalayan salt is used in some bath salts, which claim to improve skin conditions and soothe sore muscles.
