The Power of Himalayan Salt: Flavor and Health in Every Bite

Food is such an important part of our lives that we shouldn't have to decide between it tasting good or being healthy. An easy way to give any food a flavor kick plus add some healthy benefits is to use black or pink Himalayan salt. Use them as a seasoning or a sprinkle for extra flavor and texture.

Black Himalayan salt know as "Kala Namak" is fired in kilns near the Himalayan salt mines. It is highly valued for its medicinal quality and slightly pungent odor. However, when it is added as a seasoning prior to cooking or grilling or even to salads and marinades, this disappears. All that remains is a flavorful seasoning that enhances everything that is sprinkled on. Steaks, chops, salads, soups, marinades all become delightful blends of incredible flavor.

Pink Himalayan salt, be it light or dark, is a welcome change from our normal table salt. Basic table salt has no value, since it is made industrially and heated to extreme temperatures. Himalayan salts have only been hand washed and are over 250 million years old, they are the purest salts on earth and are being used by chefs all over the world. Only a teaspoon or less and pink salts can help balance fluids in our systems, balance our ph and blood pressure and has 84 trace minerals. Used as a seasoning, in tiny pieces to give a crunch or a pinch in desserts, Pink Salt gives foods a burst of mouthwatering flavor!

Himalayan salts are proven to enhance brain function. improve digestion, help with the absorption of food in the small intestines, promote bone health and so much more. Food has never tasted so good and been so good for you!
