History of Pink Salt

    Himalayan Pink Salt was originally formed from marine fossil deposits over 250 million years ago during the Jurassic era. Harvested from ancient sea beds, this rare and extraordinary salt has been a valuable commodity for centuries. 

   Historically, the Himalayan people used this salt to preserve their fish and meat throughout the year, and every spring they transported the salt to Nepalese valleys for trade. Heavily burdened yaks would carry the salt along narrow sloping paths, mountains, and cliffs in order to sell and exchange the salt for other commodities.

    Himalayan Pink Salt is still extracted from mines by hand, according to long-standing tradition, and without the use of any mechanical devices or explosion techniques. After being hand-selected, the salt is then hand-crushed, hand-washed, and dried in the sun. 

    However it should be noted that most of the commercial supply of Himalayan Pink Salt on the market today is currently coming from the mountainous regions of Pakistan.

    For culinary purposes, simply dissolve the salt into soups and hot dishes, or place the coarse salt crystals into a salt grinder and mill directly onto dishes.

    In any grocery stores you get huge lumps of Himalayan salt you can crush it on a grinder to get it into small granules, using this in your daily food will improve your health to a good extent  Never ming the evil pharma and doctors shall advice you to have iodized salts to get their profits churning. Please revert your use to pink salt for you and your family's sake.

    Its much expensive than the normal table salt you find it can go to about 100 to 120 Rs a kilo but with much health benefits it's a must buy.
