Check this one. You are sitting down for an awesome family feast. The best china, silk cloth, crystal glasses – it is all there. Yes, there is fresh apple-cinnamon-ginger juice in the glasses. There are baked, steam-cooked and sautéed veggies all over the table. Suddenly, someone grabs the salt and yells out, “Why is your salt pink?”
Be nice and explain everyone that it is Himalayan salt, and that it is super-healthy.
The Himalayan mountain range goes across Asia, and passes through China, Nepal, Myanmar, Pakistan, Bhutan, Afghanistan, and India. People usually associate the Himalayans with Mount Everest, or the highest peak on the planet, but there is something even more exclusive about it – the Himalayan salt.
Hundreds of millions years ago crystallized sea salt beds were covered with lava. Today, they lie deep in the Himalayans.
The salt was not only preserved in a pristine environment surrounded with snow and ice, but the lava also protected it from pollution. This is why Himalayan Pink Salt is considered to be the purest salt out there. Today it is hand-mined from the mountains and later sold on the market.
Why is it pink?
Its pink color indicates that Himalayan salt is loaded with minerals and energy-rich iron.
Same as the vitamins and minerals are packed with fruits and veggies, minerals found in this pink salt also work in synergy.
Synergy is an interaction of multiple elements in a certain system that produces an effect that is different from the other effects.
Iodine – Natural salts are loaded with iodine, and there is no need for it to be additionally added in.
Less sodium per serving – Himalayan salt has the same components as table salt, but as its crystals are larger than those of refined salt, this salt has less sodium per 1/4 t serving. This is because the sea salt flakes take up less room in a teaspoon when compared to the refined table salt.
