Pink Himalayan Salt For Cooking 925g/2 lb Pouch
Pink Himalayan salt is a pink-colored salt extracted from the Khewra Salt Mine, which is located near the Himalayas in Pakistan. The Khewra Salt Mine is one of the oldest and largest salt mines in the world.
The pink Himalayan salt harvested from this mine is believed to have been formed millions of years ago from the evaporation of ancient bodies of water.
The salt is hand-extracted and minimally processed to yield an unrefined product that's free of additives and thought to be much more natural than table salt.
Like table salt, pink Himalayan salt is mostly comprised of sodium chloride. However, the natural harvesting process allows pink Himalayan salt to possess many other minerals and trace elements that are not found in regular table salt.
It is estimated that it contains up to 84 different minerals and trace elements. It's these very minerals, especially iron, that give it its characteristic pink color.
In general, you can cook with pink Himalayan salt just like you would with regular table salt. Put it in sauces and marinades or add it to your food at the dinner table.
Considerations for Cooking
- Whenever you're measuring any kind of salt by volume, it's important to consider how finely it's ground.
- You may need to use larger quantities of coarse salt to match the saltiness of finely ground salt. This is because finely ground salt is packed closer together than coarse salt, so there's more of it in a particular volume.
- For example, 1 teaspoon of any type of finely ground salt may contain around 2,300 mg of sodium, while 1 teaspoon of coarse salt will vary based on crystal size but could contain less than 2,000 mg of sodium.
- Furthermore, pink Himalayan salt contains slightly less sodium chloride than regular table salt, which you may need to account for when cooking.
- Current dietary guidelines in the UK recommend that most adults consume no more than 2,300 mg of sodium per day. This is equal to around 1 teaspoon (6 grams) of finely ground salt
However, when using Our Pink Himalayan Salt, it's best to check the nutrition label which shows the serving size that you should take.

I am surprised by the pricing and quality of your salt, what can I say I have been buying the 250g pouch from tesco which costs £2.50 and is a complete rip off. On the other hand I got 2 of your pouches for £10 thats amazing value for money if you ask me. It will last me a solid month or more as I use this everyday. Will definitely be buying this again and customer service was lovely as well.
