Pink Himalayan salt is a type of rock salt that originates from the Punjab province of Pakistan at the foothills of the Himalayas.
Some people describe Himalayan pink salt as one of the purest salts and believe it has health benefits.
But does this salt earn its place among the “healthy” salts? This article will discuss the benefits of this exotic salt.
What is Pink Himalayan Salt?
Pink Himalayan salt is chemically similar to table salt. It contains up to 98 percent sodium chloride.
The remaining salt consists of trace minerals such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium. These give the salt a pale pink color.
These minerals explain why Himalayan salt has a different taste than regular table salt.
How is it used?
People use this type of salt and common table salt in the same way: for cooking, flavoring, and preserving food.
Pink salt blocks are sometimes used as dishes, cooking surfaces, and cutting boards. Some people use pink Himalayan salt instead of bath salts. You can also buy lamps and candlesticks made of pink salt.
