Did you just do a double take when you read the title? Yeah, salt can be pink too.
The Himalayas are famous for a number of reasons – for being the tallest mountains in the world, including Mount Everest, for the hundreds of lakes they contain, for the diverse flora and fauna of the region, for the breathtaking locales, and now, also for the pink salt that comes from its crystallised sea salt beds. Imagine a time some 250 million years ago, give or take a few million. These crystallised sea salt beds formed where there used to be a sea, instead of the Himalayas. These beds were then covered by lava, and the snow and the ice that have covered these beds since then have protected the salt from being corrupted by the ravages of modern living and environmental pollutants. What do we get? Hey presto! Pure and pristine salt. The pink colour of the salt (it can also be white or red) is due to the wide array of minerals and trace elements found in the salt – all 84 that are found in the human body, including iron, copper, magnesium, calcium, and potassium! Here is why Himalayan pink salt should replace your table salt, your sea salt, and even your chemically-processed bath salts:
