Did You Know?
Himalayan Pink Sea Salt contains between 96% and 99% sodium chloride, with trace presence of calcium, iron, zinc, chromium, magnesium, and sulfate, all at varying safe levels below 1%.
Himalayan pink salt comes from Pakistan. More specifically, from the Salt Range, an area of Himalayan foothills in the Punjab province. Ancient oceans deposited the salt beds that this type of rock salt is now mined from.
The salt comes in a variety of colors, primarily pink, but also white, orange, red, grey, and even black. The color of the salt is determined by the quantity of trace minerals that it contains. For example, red Himalayan salt reflects its high iron content, whilst black Himalayan salt contains a high concentration of sulfur.
