Himalayan Pink Salt is a pure, strikingly beautiful dark pink salt. The dark pink salt, unlike the ubiquitous lighter Himalayan Pink Salt varieties, can only be found in a few mines in Pakistan. This natural salt looks as beautiful on food as it does on your table in a bowl, a salt shaker, or salt mill.
Himalayan Pink Salt crystals are naturally occuring deep within the Himalayan Mountains. The salt is hand-mined by what is known as the "pillar" method. That is if one area is mined, an area of similar size is left unmined as a pillar. The colors of Himalayan Pink Salt range from very light pink to deep red. Ours is in the dark pink range. The deeper the colors in the salt, the higher the mineral content. Himalayan Pink Salt contains 84 trace minerals; making this salt a very high mineral salt. We have sampled many Himalayan Pink Salts and came back to ours as the highest quality, best color, and purest flavor.
Himalayan Pink Salt has a nice firm crunch. It is not soft like a sea salt. It is an ideal salt for everyday use. The fine grain salt is perfect in a shaker, a bowl, or for use in cooking by the stove. The coarse grain salt is wonderful in a salt mill for use at the table. The flavor of Himalayan Pink Salt is soft and gentle, with a touch of sweetness. There is no harshness or bitterness in this salt. Enjoy on all food.

This salt is pretty in the shaker and also tastes great. Just the right amount of saltiness.

This is a great garnesh to any dish. We use this to finish any dish on the plate and use kosher salt for cooking. What a difference this makes with the final taste. Subtle yet detectable. Perfect, and you will notice a pleasurable difference.

I use this healthy salt on everything. The fine works nicely in my salt shaker, which I just keep next to my stove or on my table top. The Pink Himalayan Salt is beautiful, and tastes delicious!
