Himalayan salt, also known as pink salt, is mined in the Punjab area of Pakistan near the base of the Himalayan Mountains.
Thought to be from a primal sea, these salt deposits , many 5,000 feet below the surface of the earth and 100 to 200 million years old, were discovered when Alexander the Great’s army stopped to rest and their horses began to lick the rocks in the area.
Himalyan salt is 99% pure and contains trace minerals of calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron, giving it its pink coloring and making Himalayan salt the most nutritious of all salts.
