Himalayan Pink Sea Salt For Better Tasting Food

Updated on November 15, 2014

Benefits of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt

Our family was Introduced to the Pink Himalayan Sea Salt about two years ago when we purchased a container of the coarsely ground Pink Sea Salt, from Swanson. What we found is that Pink Sea Salt livens up our food just like standard table salt, but without having that overly salty taste that comes from more traditional salt sources and you only need to add a pinch here and there.

Himalayan pink sea salt isn't new. In fact it's been around since before the dinosaurs. According to scientists the Himalayan Sea Salt which is mined in, where else but, "The Himalayan Foot Hills", was naturally formed approximately 250 million years ago.

Cooking with Himalayan sea salt is only the beginning. It is also used in many other ways, such as: The Himalayan Sea Salt Lamp shown in the intro folder, Himalayan Salt inhalers, Himalayan Salt Lick for horses and other farm animals, Plates made of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, Sea Salt Blocks for cooking and serving, you can even bring your internal salt levels to the perfect balance by bathing in it.

Sounds like a miracle salt and it may well be, however all I can verify is that it is more flavorful than regular salt when used in cooking. The rest of this lens will be dedicated to examining some of the other miraculous claims made about Pink Himalayan Sea Salt.

      Himalayan salt is very good, but it is sad to hear that people are selling "Himalayan salt" excavated in Italy or where ever...
